Career

Keith Calder ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE keith calder

After graduating from the University of Southern California (USC) Peter Stark Producing Program in 2004, Calder and fellow Stark graduates Felipe Marino and Joe Neurauter set up a production company, Occupant Films, in 2005. According to Calder, he joined together with Marino and Neurauter because "If you're by yourself in the industry, it's easy to convince yourself you're doing well. Having partners allows you to get an objective view." Through USC's writing division, the three producers found their first script, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane by Jacob Forman, within a week of starting the company. After its completion, the film was screened at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival and was bought by The Weinstein Company, though it was re-sold and has yet to be released in the United States. Occupant Films' second project was The Wackness, written and directed by Jonathan Levine, with whom the trio had worked on All the Boys Love Mandy Lane. Working with Levine for a second time, Calder said that "We want to continue working with strong, creative partners and build a long, lasting relationship with them." Neurauter commented that "We saw a lot doors open once we sold Mandy Lane, but it's a whole different level to have a movie [The Wackness] released. It gives you a totally different perception in the community." Marino said that, having produced two feature films, "The goal in the upcoming years is to do two to three movies per year." In 2008, he was named one of Variety's "10 Producers to Watch" alongside Marino and Neurauter.

Personal life

Calder was born in London, though he now lives in Los Angeles. His biggest source of inspiration as a producer is Mike Nichols' 1967 film The Graduate, "because it's a smart, strong, personal vision and story but appealing and accessible to a wide, mainstream audience". Calder is the son of record executive and businessman Clive Calder.
