Stuart Craig

Jane Barnwell


Three-time Academy Award winning production designer Stuart Craig received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Art Directors Guild in February 2008.  Over the last decade, audiences have become familiar with Craig’s work as production designer on one of the most successful film series around the world: Harry Potter. The average Harry Potter film costs $280 million to make, taking seven months in preproduction and another seven or eight to shoot. Based at Leavesden Studios, Craig typically employs around 40 people in his immediate art department and can be in charge of up to 200 employees.  With the final Harry Potter film currently in production, Craig’s talents will soon be freed from the Harry Potter legacy and opened up to new horizons.
