Premiere and interview over at

"A peculiar and unnerving atmospheric short about isolation, obsession and creation, which follows an isolated man's ritualistic compulsions in the pursuit survival, even if it means he must part with his own flesh and blood. Though absent of dialogue, Keratin retains a powerful voice through a haunting score." - Leeds International Film Festival

"The cinematography by Andrew Butler (also credited as co-director) is fantastic. Shot choices are exquisite, with mounted cameras on objects, still shots, and the hand-held scenes are great also. It’s rare that a short film comes along with such a tight edit, wonderful sound (both audibly and musically) and engaging performances. Keratin provides all of this and even though it’s quite a simple structured story, the ideas and thoughts it provokes merit that." - UK Film Review
