SNATCHERS | DARK COMEDY/THRILLER | FEATURE
In a world where the Elite pay good money for the organs of the young, healthy and not so wealthy; a pair of reluctant organ harvesters get thrown a curveball when their latest corpse wakes up.
THE LONELY MAN'S GUIDE TO THE END OF THE WORLD | HORROR/COMEDY | FEATURE
When a plague of sentient zombies descend upon the nation’s capital, a reclusive widower must confront his past and deliver his neighbour’s children to their parents.
Working alongside the talented Creswick Collective, Craig spent several months capturing the creation of a large scale mural blanketing The Street CBR. Created by internationally renowned stencil artist Luke Cornish (E.L.K) the project came out of the Covid Lockdown and the isolation of an empty theatre amidst an empty precinct.
