Ron Craig teaches at Ryerson University Theatre School in the Performance Production Program.
For over 25 years, Craig was a Special Effects Supervisor in the film industry. He worked on over 50 feature films and 14 TV series. Ron worked with 8 Academy Award winning actors, Academy Award winning cinematographers and award winning directors – in both Canada and the US. He has worked for major studios in the US, including Paramount Pictures, HBO, United Artists, CBS, ABC and NBC.
He is a successful TV Producer, and is the writer and co-creator of a prime time TV show. In addition, he was hired in April 2012 to produce a car race series for Dodge Chrysler USA and NBC Sports: this series, which has just finished production, is currently on air in the US and Canada.
Craig has taught in China at The Nanjing Institute of Industry and Technology, The Beijing Film School, and the largest Opera School in China. He has delivered seminars and lectures to students at 8 universities in China. He has presented peer reviewed papers at conferences in the US and Europe.
He is a professional writer and has worked for companies in the US and Canada, creating corporate brochures and advertising material. He has published over 20 magazine articles.
Craig is the co inventor of a system for recycling tires: his invention recycles 100% of the tire. In addition, in the early 1980’s he worked on a system for extracting silver from photographic solutions used to process film and prints. This system captured 98% of the silver from these solutions, diverting hundreds of thousands of ounces of silver from being poured down the drain and polluting the environment.
He is currently writing a book on creativity, based on an entirely new theory, and has developed a system for teaching creativity to management personnel in corporations.
