Tax Cuts. Dir: Jon Kerby.
A short horror film based in a world where taxes have gone crazy and the government not only takes your money but now your blood too.
In an authoritarian, dystopian future, the government not only taxes its citizens’ incomes, but their blood too – by force if necessary. Fiona and Tom are making a documentary about the divisive system, following the work of two tax collectors, Isaac and Jeremy. It’s all going well until things hit close to home for Tom…
Rich was cast in the lead role of Isaac despite having only been an actor for a couple of months.
A Life, Unfulfilled. Dir: Luke Butler
Isolated, depressed, and close to giving up, thirty-something Michael Raznik (Rich Keeble) has closed himself off from the rest of the world. Venturing out only for a punishing, pre-dawn run through nearby woodland, it’s fast becoming time for him to face his worst fears or risk being consumed by them forever. He is unexpectedly given a helping hand when a mysterious stranger ambushes his morning excursion. Can this most unlikely of saviours put his life back on track and help eliminate the source of his fear, or is Michael destined to live a life, unfulfilled?
Rich spent most of the cold external shoots running flat out to get the necessary shots and to achieve the exhausted world weary look of the character.
Rich met Paul Jones during the filming of “Tax Cuts” (camera operator/DOP) and has worked with him on three occasions since: “The Post”, “No Small Matter”, and this absurd comedy.

After performing magic tricks to an increasingly unimpressed female companion during a picnic, Rich loses a hand and then loses his head in a scene which apparently got “the best reaction of the night” at the screening.
Ben (Rich): “and now, I will make this… disappear…”
