Director / Producer Keith Famie was, for many years, known as a celebrity chef. Famie was also a finalist on the 2001 reality television series, “Survivor, the Australian Outback.” Keith hosted his own Food Network series, “Keith Famie’s Adventures,” traveling the world documenting cooking styles from the plains of Africa to monk monasteries of Taiwan, to the lifestyle of Key West.
In 2004, he embarked on a new journey — documentary filmmaking.
“I didn’t want to be the ‘adventure chef ’ guy anymore. I wanted to help people tell their stories.” Since that life-changing decision, Famie has been awarded eleven Michigan Emmys and been nominated several other times for his rich, human-interest storytelling, from ethnic documentaries to military tribute films. He and his team at Visionalist Entertainment Productions create informative, entertaining films that touch a wide audience.
