Oscar Nominated JJ Keith is a born and bred Londoner. Educated in the UK, he graduated from Edinburgh University with an MA majoring in Film Studies. He launched his career directing short films, all of which were acclaimed on the festival circuit. The second of which led to his Oscar nomination. After a period in TV drama he moved his focus to advertising.
Although, probably best known for his comedy work and performances, he is a keen photographer with a strong interest in the visual.
His work has been awarded Golds, Silvers and Bronzes at Cannes, Creative Circle, One Show and BTA’s. His spot for Ice Dew was the first Chinese film to be shortlisted at Cannes.
Thanks for watching.
