About

Michael Keillor grew up in the Scottish countryside, writing stories and taking photographs while exploring the wonders of the local video store. After Law School, Michael scripted the second instalment of ‘Grand Theft Auto’, the soon to be a multi-million selling global phenomenon, before turning his attention to film.

Michael’s first film screenplay was shortlisted for BBC Fast Forward Features, while his second script ‘Happy Slapz’, secured a commission from Channel 4. Michael directed the resulting film as part of the channel’s new talent ‘Coming Up’ strand, and subsequently launched himself into directing television drama, cutting his teeth on some of Britain’s most popular shows.

Michael received a Scottish BAFTA nomination for the three-part Christmas drama ‘Young James Herriot’ then shot the season one finale of Andrew Davies’ ‘Mr Selfridge’ with Jeremy Piven and Frances O’Conner. Michael has just delivered Peter Moffat’s BAFTA nominated legal drama ‘Silk’, with Maxine Peake and Rupert Penry Jones reprising their lead roles and is about to take up the reins on ‘Critical’, Jed Mercurio’s highly anticipated medical drama for Sky One.

Michael continues to develop feature projects while writing and directing his own short films. His most recent commission is the BFI backed 'Liam & Lenka', produced by Ally Gipps at Warp Films; starring Iain de Caestecker (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Katarina Cas (Wolf of Wall Street) as the eponymous lovestruck couple on the run.

Michael is currently adapting 'Liam & Lenka' into a Feature Film.

Michael is also represented by Phil D'Amecourt, Melissa Myers and Ryan Draizin at WME in LA.
