Chris Keener

Director / EP

Chris Keener has spent a very healthy number of years creating, directing, and producing content for outfits like National Geographic, Discovery Channel, PBS, Dow Jones, ESPN, and the Travel Channel. He has been founder and principal of two acclaimed production companies - Goldenbear and Goodfight Media. His narrative, documentary, and commercial work has ranged from large international organizations to blue-chip brands and artists. He’s currently directing the 5-part series ‘We Speak Dance’ for Netflix distribution, and recently helmed the Webby-Award winning docuseries ‘Conflict’, programmed on Netflix and the Atlantic. 

Chris loves finding humor and compassion in his work, and his lust for high seas has taken him the world over - cameras, crew, and surfboard in tow. In addition to filmic endeavors, he has worked professionally as actor and host for television and stage, and creator of theater, live storytelling, and 360/ virtual reality.
