Craig Stuart Garfinkle
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. Other recent features include: 8989 Redstone (New Wave Entertainment), Get Out if You Can (directed by T.J. Martin), and the supernatural thriller The Occupants (Todd Alcott, writer of Antz, is the writer/director). Recently, Craig also wrote the score for the indie comedy and now festival favorite Karaoke Man. 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). Some of his most notable projects in this genre would include: Red, J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek, Sin City, the last three Harry Potter films, Vicky Christina Barcelona, Over the Hedge, Spider-Man 3, James Bond: A Quantum of Solace, and many more.
