In early 2002 Craig joined the National Geographic Channel and produced its first in-house series for Asia, called Geowatch Asia. After serving in various executive roles in the broadcast industry, Craig founded his own production company, Ocean Vista Films Ltd, and produced some of Asia’s most iconic documentaries, including Marco Polo: The China Mystery Revealed (NGC), which was voted the 13th best documentary of all time on National Geographic Channel Asia. He then founded Leeson Media International, where he has produced and directed hundreds of tv commercials, corporate films and documentaries.
His current triumph is his feature-length directorial debut on the award-winning documentary A Plastic Ocean. This powerful film has been screening to sold out audiences around the world, received rave reviews and numerous awards from film festivals big and small. It’s no wonder that iconic naturalist Sir David Attenborough has called it “The most important film of our time.”
Craig currently has three projects in production and pre-production. Stay tuned for more details!
