JJ Keith



Hello, I’m a born and bred Londoner with a German mother and Austrian father. Educated in the UK, I graduated from Edinburgh University with an MA majoring in Film Studies. I launched my career directing short films, all of which were acclaimed on the festival circuit. My second short, Holiday Romance, was nominated for an Oscar no less. I followed that with a period in TV drama before focusing on advertising.

Although, probably best known for my comedy work and performances, I am a keen photographer and have a strong interest in the visual.

My work has been awarded Golds, Silvers and Bronzes at Cannes, Creative Circle, One Show and BTA’s. My spot for Ice Dew was the first Chinese film to be shortlisted at Cannes.

Thanks for watching.
