Keidrych developed a love for film that began at an early age. It was upon watching One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest and Apocalypse Now in his early teens that he decided he would pursue a career in film. Keidrych was immediately drawn towards powerful and imaginative imagery, first experimenting with photography before moving towards making short 16mm films without dialogue whilst at University.

Keidrych was accepted onto the prestigious National Film and Television School cinematography course and it was here that he began to develop his craft shooting a wide variety of films predominantly on 16mm. Upon graduating Keidrych began a career as a director of photography which has developed into a wide portfolio of drama, commercial, music video and documentary work both in the UK and internationally.

Recent drama work includes ‘The Dreams Of Bethany Mellmoth’, a TV pilot written by William Boyd (Chaplin) and produced by Hilary Bevan Jones (Cracker, State Of Play) and Georgina Lowe (Mr Turner) for Endor. Keidrych’s short film Rose was awarded best cinematography by the BFI and Film London at the London Calling Awards. His short film Monster has won numerous awards including best cinematography, playing at many international film festivals including Palm Springs. Keidrych has shot many other short films along with some low budget features that have had a strong presence on the international film festival circuit, including Tribulation, his debut which premiered at Locarno International Film Festival.
