I had the pleasure of working with Keith Dunne on Harlots series 3 and was absolutely delighted with the whole experience. Keith is a total team player and relishes working closely with the director, DP, location manager, and costume and make-up designers to ensure the whole world we are creating together is intricately realised and gloriously photogenic.
Keith also really understands how to make the absolute most of the resources available and can adapt accordingly in an instant. On Harlots, he designed an extraordinarily brilliant outdoor set with infinite shooting possibilities, expanding the Harlots visual palate considerably. And when the budget is constrained, Keith produces wonderfully inventive solutions to ensure the overall look is never compromised.
Keith has a flaming passion for production design and his dedication and enthusiasm to make it all work and be the best it can possibly be is inspiring and his attention to detail is second to none. And he’s such a delight and so much fun to collaborate with. I can’t recommend Keith highly enough and would work with him again in a heartbeat.

Director 'Harlots'

“I had the pleasure of working with Keith on series 3 of Harlots for Hulu. From the very beginning, Keith approached series 3 with a wonderful new vision of opening up our world and bringing life and depth into every set. Recycling and always thinking of how to reuse in inventive ways. Presentation of designs was always inspiring. His attention to detail and colour is just beautiful.We threw some very last minutechanges into the mix and Keith stepped up every time. Always thinking bigger/better/richer. I was so impressed in how Keith managed a tight budget, kept us informed and up-to-date and still delivered an incredibly rich and layered world for us. I would have no hesitation in working with Keith again”.

"It gives me great pleasure to whole-heartedly recommend Keith as an exciting and thoroughly classy Production Designer. I found Keith's unfailing good taste, wonderfully creative ideas that were so vividly expressed and presented, along with his extensive production experience and unflagging determination to get the very best on screen, all made for a really successful collaboration. The production value that Keith achieves through detailed research, ambitious approach, great flair and meticulous execution is top-notch. As a director (and I know for the director of photography and cast, too) it was a joy to recce with Keith, and to walk onto each new set. We felt so confident of achieving stylish, elegant imagery because Keith laid it out right in front of us, delivering on all the storyboards and look books that he’d shown us in prep. Keith's work in art and theatre combines it with a properly cinematic eye, putting scale, depth, and sheer class on camera. But it’s never design-for-design’s sake: Keith’s choices are underpinned by really perceptive understanding of the characters and storyline, and always boosted the emotional journey of the drama. Nothing is more fun than creating visually exciting images - and working with Keith was seriously good fun."

“Keith Joined us as Production Designer for the second series of The Mallorca Files. Keith’s attention to detail and overall quality of design was exceptional. Throughout the process Keith was brilliant at thinking outside the box and communicating his ideas to both the director and production. He managed his and the directors design aspirations within his budget.He has very much brought his unique and wonderful flavour to this series and it is evident in every episode. I would have no problem in recommending his work.”
Dominic Barlow

The creative flair that Keith brought to our production took the vision of our director to another level. Keith’s inspired application of shape, colour and texture to our set builds provided for an extremely versatile filming environment which translated brilliantly to the screen. His exquisite attention to detail, the needs of other departments, and to budget overall is above and beyond, every time.

Keith Dunne did a phenomenal job for us as Designer on our feature film ‘Ravers’. It was an ambitious brief on a tight budget but with his painstaking attention to detail, enthusiastic and innovative approach he succeeded in producing an inspired set for our central location whilst dealing with the everyday demands of a busy schedule. His management of his team, budget & schedule was extremely impressive. He is very hands on, a great team leader and he can make the money work cleverly whilst maintaining very high standard. I have no hesitation in recommending Keith as a Designer and I certainly hope to work with him again soon.

I recently worked with Keith on Red Dwarf Series XII. We brought Keith in after the previous designer had completed Series XI. Keith embraced the idea of transforming and improving the existing standing sets with enthusiasm. His attention to detail is fantastic. He managed his team and the budget brilliantly despite the demanding schedule and last minute changes. His show piece set design was fabulous and inspired. He worked extremely hard through the entire series. I really hope I can work with him again soon.
Kerry Waddell
Producer 'Red Dwarf' XI & XII

Keith production designed the new series of Red Dwarf, a complex and challenging show for any designer. However, from the outset Keith displayed a tremendous creativity, resourcefulness and understanding of the characters to massively enhance the look of show. His attention to detail was immense as was his ability to create exciting, distinctive sets whilst maintaining the established‘Red Dwarf look’. Keith consistently impressed despite having a tight budget and little time managing to transform our standing sets as well as constructing beautiful guest sets each and every week. Keith built new sets, recycled old ones, built some inside of others and I’m convinced at least once, summoned one out of thin air, ensuring we always hit our incredibly tight schedule.
Even more impressively Keith did all this whilst always providing a brief with detailed drawings and designs allowing for input before anything went ahead.
I would highly recommend Keith and his team on any production and look forward to working with him again soon.
Richard Naylor
Producer 'Red Dwarf' XI & XII

Keith Dunne is a highly talented and inspiring Production Designer. We had the pleasure working with him over a period of two years on 12 x 90’ prime time TV dramas - shot on location in Cornwall and Based on books by the Cornish writer Rosamunde Pilcher. He anticipates problems, is extremely versatile, and always finds solutions (within the budget) is amenable and incredible creative. His visual flair and his design work is impeccable.
The innovative set design and his hands on approach makes him a very valuable asset to every film crew. His hard working team, managed on a very personal level, didn’t shy away from the most difficult tasks and always delivered on time and budget.
We can highly recommend working with him and would do so again, should the situation arise.
