Calvin Keo is a Canadian Writer/Director and Producer. He was born in Thailand, of Cambodian decent and raised in Windsor, Ontario Canada.

Growing up, he was always very fascinated with films and visual storytelling. That fascination soon turned into a passion of his and he decided very early on that he would pursue filmmaking as a career.

Graduating from Fanshawe College’s Advanced Filmmaking Program, Calvin has worked professionally in many aspects of production from pre to post. His experience includes Short Films, Documentary, Feature-Length Narrative, Reality-Based, Lifestyle, Digital and Music Videos.
