  • Craig Byrd

    Craig Byrd has over 3,000 interviews to his credit and is a top producer and interviewer for behind-the-scenes marketing videos and Blu-Ray extras. His career started with a Wayne’s World-meets-Siskel & Ebert public access show called The Screening Room. Though his first interview (with Charlton Heston) was dreadful, he’s gotten better. His interview with President Jimmy Carter can be heard in Argo. He grew up in La Mirada, where his father made his first private studio tours possible. When not on a film set, he’s frequently found in a darkened theater enjoying the fact that his cell phone is off.
