Keene's name is often mispronounced. The mispronunciation he hears the most is "Keenee," which he thinks sounds kind of cute. The correct pronunciation is just like the word:

 

keen

/kēn/

adjective: keen; comparative adjective: keener; superlative adjective: keenest​​

  1. (of a sense) highly developed

  2. having or showing great perception or insight

  3. (of the edge or point of the blade) sharp

  4. (of the air or wind) extremely cold; biting

  5. (of a smell, light, or sound) penetrating; clear

  6. having or showing eagerness or enthusiasm

  7. interested in or attracted by (someone or something)

  8. excellent

  9. (of prices) very low; competitive 

 

Keene thinks numbers 1, 2, 6, 8, and 9 make up a good definition of himself. He hopes to one day remove 9 from this list.

Keenee is a (relatively) young filmmaker and actor who never attended film school -- or any college for that matter. Keener is from Birmingham, Alabama and now lives in Los Angeles.

Keenest works very hard to make good music videos and films. Sometimes people agree with him and give him awards.
