Craig Campobasso

Filmmaker - Stranger At The Pentagon, Author

Multiple award-winning filmmaker and Emmy-nominated casting director Craig Campobasso was fifteen when he started in the entertainment business. After graduating high school at age seventeen, Craig went to work behind-the-scenes on Frank Herbert’s Dune directed by David Lynch; and two Arnold Schwarzenegger movies Conan The Destroyer and Total Recall. He began his casting career on Steven Spielberg’s Amazing Stories, and later he received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Casting for a Series on David E. Kelley’s Picket Fences. Craig’s casting career spans three decades.

Craig’s mother Marie Donna King Campobasso told him from the time she was pregnant with him that she knew he would become a writer. He fulfilled that prophecy when he was twenty six, after he experienced a life-changing spiritual awakening. That’s when The Autobiography of an ExtraTerrrestrial Saga four part book series was born. His passion is to write stories that provoke the reader to think, to raise their consciousness, to expand their mind about Creation, while still entertaining in the Hollywood tradition.
