Keith Sutliff, from Tampa, Florida, is a stylistic filmmaker whose work emphasizes nonlinear type storytelling and a dark desaturated lighting/color tone. This is what he refers to as the "Christopher Nolan style" of filmmaking.
After graduating from H.B. Plant High school in 2005 and obtaining a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Central Florida in Orlando in 2010, Keith moved to Los Angeles in 2012. Shortly thereafter he attended a filmmaking trade school in East Los Angeles.
Keith obtained multiple certificates from the trade center before leaving the school and starting his own production company, KS Pictures LLC. From there Keith would produce, write, and direct multiple short films before making his first feature film.
Keith uses a variety of unorthodox, moving, and extreme close up shots to tell a story. Many of the stories/scripts he writes are Crime, Drama, and Thriller based, a genre he enjoys most. After seeing films such as The Untouchables, Reservoir Dogs, and Drive this is a genre he knew he wanted to write/direct films about, one which he believes can captivate an audience. Some of the other scripts he writes are Action and Sci-Fi based as well.
Keith made his first feature film directorial debut with "The Mason Brothers". A Crime/Drama/Thriller he also wrote and produced. The film is set for a worldwide premiere and theatrical release in Los Angeles, CA on April 14, 2017. See details from the website KSPICTURESLLC.COM below:
