Gregg Helvey received his M.F.A in film production from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, and his B.A.s in English and French from the University of Virginia.

Gregg has traveled the world to film in countries such as El Salvador, China, Kenya and England on projects ranging from independent fictional films to National Geographic and BBC1 documentaries.

His award-winning work includes the documentary, Overexposed, which examines how pornography affects men.

Gregg wrote, directed and produced Kavi, the winning film of the 2009 Student Academy Award® gold medal in the narrative category.

Kavi was filmed entirely on location in India and tells the story of a young boy who wants to play cricket and go to school, but instead he is forced to work in a brick kiln as a modern-day slave.
