Craig Campobasso (Colleague of Dr. Frank Stranges)
9.8 – The Mysterious Nine (7.8.16)
Fresh out of high school, California native Craig found himself working behind the scenes for four years on Frank Herbert’s Dune. The father and daughter producing team, Dino and Raffaella De Laurentiis, and director David Lynch, were Craig’s mentors into the business of filmmaking. After he apprenticed as a casting associate on Steven Spielberg’s Amazing Stories, Raffaella later hired him to be casting director for the popular Christmas movie Prancer, starring Sam Elliott. Emmy-nominated for casting David E. Kelly’s Picket Fences, Craig has been casting for more than three decades and is an acting coach in the Los Angeles area.
Craig’s 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. Craig directed, wrote and produced the short film Stranger at the Pentagon, which was adapted from the popular UFO book authored by the late Dr. Frank E. Stranges. After production, the short film collected accolades. In September 2014, it won Best Sci-Fi film at the Burbank International Film Festival, selling out all 275 seats—a first for the festival. In 2015, it won a Remi Award at the Worldfest Houston International Film Festival for Best Sci-Fi Short.
“The Autobiography of an ExtraTerrestrial Saga: Thyron’s Dossier” is the third and final installment of the Trilogy. Craig’s fourth book: The Huroid Revolution will be released in June 2018. His first book “The Autobiography of an ExtraTerrestrial Saga: I AM Thyron,” was released on 11-11-11.
