Robert Craig Films Inc., a new Placer County-based movie production company with a mission to produce inspirational family films, announced that one of its movie screenplays, “Amy and Angel,” has been officially selected in more than 100 film festivals around the world and has won numerous awards, including Best Screenplay at the New York Film Awards, the Lonely Wolf Film Festival in England and the Masters of Cinema Film Festival in Italy.
Founder Robert Craig is a local entrepreneur with success in the construction industry over the past two decades and plans to produce the company’s movies in the Sacramento region.
Craig started the Gutterglove company in 1996 and developed it into a leading gutter guard supplier in the U.S. with manufacturing plants in California and Tennessee. After running the company for more than 20 years, Craig stepped down from the company to launch Robert Craig Films in 2019, pursuing his dreams of filmmaking.
Soon after, Craig partnered with Hollywood film producer, writer and director, Julia Verdin of Rough Diamond Productions, a veteran in the entertainment industry. She consults with Robert Craig Films as a producer and is also the writer and director behind the first three films in development.

“No Address” — A group of homeless people bond together as a family while struggling to survive on the streets without food and shelter, against a harassing gang, an unforgiving community and the local authorities. Production status: Filming in October 2022

“We want to help influence positive change in the world,” explained Craig. “Our spiritually uplifting films address difficult subjects with a message of hope. We seek to inspire audiences to be moved by these stories and to get involved in supporting these types of causes in their own communities.”
