A graduate of both the UCLA producing and screenwriting programs, Calix Lewis Reneau is an amazing writer because as an ardent connoisseur of story, Calix understands and executes the critical elements that constitute a superior screenplay. While he respects the rules of the game, he is bold to take risks that expose the fury and frailty of humanity, seeing past the obvious to reveal the complex dimensions in his characters and to elevate his commercial stories with a unique depth and vision.
Both amiable and professional, with a keen perception and respect for the lens, Calix joyfully works with the vision of the director, producers and actors in support of every project he’s involved in. Calix creates projects that regularly attract top Hollywood talent who choose to work with him repeatedly.
In a word: Calix delivers.
In addition to his screenwriting, Calix has been successful in many different writing genres and media. He is the author of nearly 100 nationally-published articles, an award-winning songwriter, top-selling greeting card writer, and the author of the novel Stardog: Connection. In the last three years, Calix has produced over 30 original projects, including shorts, iPhone apps, animation, sitcom pilots, talk shows, and three feature films. Calix is currently working with USMC LtCol Doug Woodhams to develop the feature film OUTPOST ECHO, the story of the US Marines in Afghanistan.
