THE ORIGIN OF STONEHAVEN STUDIOS
The name "Stonehaven Studios" comes all the way from Stonehaven, New Brunswick, Canada. As a young teenager, Craig made his first "film" -- on his father's VHS camera -- for a local farm owner. The farmer needed a video to showcase the farm to a potential buyer from Scandanavia.
The production was made in the basement of a friend's parents house, edited using two VHS players, contained an accompanying score and narration track, and was promptly sent off to Scandanavia. Although the farm never did sell, that basement in Stonehaven was the original "Stonehaven Studios" and Craig kept the name for all future productions.
