As the Artistic Director of Film & Television Studio International, Craig works at the very heartbeat of our industry, developing exciting new talent to springboard onto our screens. As the CEO of McMahon Management, personal manager to local and international artists, Craig is at the coalface of what is happening on the daily in the film and television industry – globally.
With an electric, visionary, and excitable approach to developing hugely successful careers, Craig is a dynamic, innovative and hands on manager. He works with his actors from the ground up – renowned for literally taking raw, emerging clients and developing them into not only working, but award-winning actors. His longstanding working relationships with USA and UK managers, agents, and immigration attorneys, enable him to continue this ongoing journey and partnership with his artists – internationally. Established in 2002, Craig’s top-tier management company celebrates popular culture whilst still having a deep appreciation and respect for industry tradition and history, working together with artists to accomplish the shared goal of telling stories in theatre, film and television.
A man of many talents, Craig worked for Network Ten for over a decade as a Television Presenter and Segment Producer and received the Network Ten Achiever of the Year Award for excellence in producing, writing and presenting – nationally. Prior to that, Craig spent many years in Los Angeles training as an actor, with some of the finest trainers and mentors in the world.
