Bio
Steve Douglas-Craig – M.F.A

After graduating from the American Film Institute Conservatory with an MFA in Screenwriting, Steve was recruited by Sony Pictures Entertainment to work as a Story Editor for the Worldwide Acquisitions Team where he received invaluable experience in story development, feature film packaging, domestic & international distribution, theatrical marketing & feature film acquisition. In his role, he helped develop & shepherd film titles including Terminator: Salvation, The Book of Eli, Django Unchained, War Room, Don’t Breathe (Sequel current in post-production), the Insidious horror movie franchise, Manchester By The Sea, The Grudge (reboot), Searching, Arrival, Whiplash, The Call, Attack The Block and many others (including TV releases – The Tudors, House of Cards).

He was then promoted to Senior Story Editor & Creative Executive at Screen Gems where he was involved in the development & release of theatrical titles like Monster Hunter and Sam Raimi’s adaptation of James Herbert’s The Unholy. Before that he helped shepherd Black & Blue, The Intruder, Possession of Hannah Grace, Brightburn, and Slender Man.

As well as his development life, Steve is a professional writer having worked as a freelance for hit CBS TV series Hawaii Five-O over a number of seasons. He currently has a TV pilot, limited series, and several features in various stages of development with his literary management team at Zero Gravity Management in Los Angeles.

Greatest achievement has been his mentoring work with the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles Program though.
