I’m a San Francisco-based documentary filmmaker and director of photography working across nonfiction, narrative and brand production. I’ve produced for creative agencies in the Bay Area since 2010 including Mekanism, Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners, Rapt Productions and the Big Picture Film & Video Arts, have worked on feature documentaries at Jigsaw Productions and Berkeley’s Investigative Reporting Program, and have published short form content with Fast Company, KQED, New York Magazine, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal and SF Chronicle, among others. I have a graduate degree in Documentary Film from UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism, where my thesis film was awarded Best Piece of Journalism on a Science or Environmental Subject. My short film “Water Town” premiered at BendFilm and is screening at festivals throughout the country, and I’m currently in production on a Sundance/Pulitzer-supported feature documentary about land use conflict in Laikipia, Kenya. A more detailed list of recent credits is here.

In 2018, I established Neighbor

In the meantime, I'm always open to new collaborations and would love to hear from you > maya.a.craig@gmail.com
