About Craig Stuart Garfinkle

As an Emmy-nominated and award winning music producer and composer, Craig Stuart Garfinkle’s career includes work on feature films, trailers, documentaries, multimedia, television, commercials, stage, CDs, and video games.

Recently, Craig composed for the iconic video game, World of WarCraft and its expansion, Warlords of Draenor (Winner, Hollywood Music in Media Award, “Best Video Game Score” and ASCAP Composer’s Choice Award Nominee). This is a continuation of his experience in video games that dates back to the earliest Dungeons and Dragons games.

Craig has just completed composing his 30th film score, the family drama, It’s Dark Here (starring Illiana Douglas, Bubba Lewis, and William Mapother). Other recent features include:  The horror film, 8989 Redstone (New Wave Entertainment) The black comedy, Get Out if You Can (directed by TJ Martin), the supernatural thriller, The Occupants (starring Cristin Milioti, Todd Alcott, writer of Antz, is the writer/director).

His music has appeared in hundreds of other film and television projects such as NBC’s The Office, Fringe, Lost, The Sopranos, X Factor and America’s Got Talent.

Craig is maybe best known, however, for his musical contribution to film trailers, often with partner Simone Benyacar (of The Ant Farm).
