CRAIG JOHNS

For over 20 years, Craig has produced and guided teams through hundreds of productions, from web content and training videos, to nationally broadcast commercials and live television shows.  His client list includes AMC Theatres, PBS, Discovery Channel, National Geographic, ESPN, and many others.


Craig enjoys working directly with his clients, taking their video content or design projects from inception, all the way through to final delivery.  He brings productions in on budget and on target, without limiting artistic vision or creative integrity.


When not working, you’ll most likely find Craig floating away the hours on the lake he calls home.  He apologizes for what you might have heard him say while docking the boat.


Craig currently make his home at Lake Waukomis (Kansas City, MO) with his wife, Sara, and daughter, Evelyn.
