CRAIG A. COLTON (Director/Editor/Executive Producer) is an Emmy-nominated film and television editor born and raised in Los Angeles. He started roaming the streets of Hollywood at an early age, trespassing onto studio back lots and getting the reputation as “that damn kid who keeps running through our miniatures."
This was Craig’s first taste of the film business…and he liked it.
Since then, he has edited over thirteen feature films including the cult classic “SURF NAZIS MUST DIE,” “BOYS LIFE 2,” and “SPEEDWAY JUNKY” starring Darryl Hannah and Jesse Bradford. He also hunkered down behind an Avid for the television shows “WEIRD SCIENCE,” “HONEY I SHRUNK THE KIDS,” and the series that was to be the “demise of television as we know it”…“SHASTA McNASTY.”
Craig has also edited award-winning documentaries for NBC News and The Museum of Television and Radio. He was nominated for an Emmy for Best Editing for the three-part documentary series, “A CENTURY OF WOMEN,” narrated by Jane Fonda.
Craig produced and edited the short film “WHEELS LOCKED” as well as numerous music videos for ZM Productions. “CAT POWER” is his directorial debut.
He has also stopped running through the miniature sets of studio back lots…
…at least for the time being.
