Alejandro Daniel Calvo (born 1967 in Buenos Aires) is an Argentine-born producer, writer, and director.[1]

Biography[edit]

Calvo was born in Buenos Aires and moved to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, when he was four. In 1974, his family relocated to the United States. Calvo's early filmmaking and screenwriting efforts gained the praise and support of Oscar-nominated producers Howard and Karen Baldwin, and Grammy-winning musician Michael Bolton. All three were executive producers on his feature film debut, The Other Side of the Tracks, a romantic thriller shot in Connecticut during the summer of 2007 and picked up by Showtime. Calvo has since gone on to produce and direct three other features: The Melancholy Fantastic, House of Dust, and The Midnight Game.

Prior to filmmaking, Calvo worked in the software industry.[2]
