Craig McMahon

Chief Executive Officer

Craig has been immersed in the worlds of theatrical and film production and finance since the early 2000s, garnering his vast knowledge of the nuts and bolts of film production at Village Roadshow on major blockbusters such as Peter Pan directed by P.J. Hogan and House of Wax.


His success on both sides of the finance equation gives him a uniquely holistic approach. Craig most recently served as executive producer on George Miller's Three Thousand Years of Longing, and he is currently producing the Robbie Williams biopic Better Man directed by Michael Gracey (The Greatest Showman).  Better Man has the highest independently-financed budget of all time for an Australian feature film production.
