Jonatan Egholm Keis is a Danish director working across music videos, commercials and scripted film.

Jonatan kicked off his career as a still photographer at the age of just 14, and shortly thereafter his stills were featured online by large and acclaimed brands such as Adobe and Canon. His passion for photography however was slowly replaced by a burning desire to make his own films, and, at the age of just 20, Jonatan wrote, co-produced and directed his first 30 minute film, Sail On, My Love, featuring Netflix stars Lucas Tønnesen (The Rain), Karoline Hamm (Equinox), Rex Leonard (The Rain) and Oscar Giese (Chernobyl). The film went on to be a part of the Official Selection at the Oscar- and EFA-qualifying Odense Film Festival in 2021.

Since then, Jonatan has directed several experimental and gritty music videos for artists like Rudimental, James Vincent McMorrow and Danish pop queen Drew Sycamore. His video for the latter won 'Best Newcomer' at 2021's UKMVAs and also received a Berlin MVA nomination for ‘Best Narrative’ that same year.
