A native New Yorker, Craig T. Williams is a writer/producer/editor at Red Wall Productions, a film production company he founded over twenty years ago with his wife and partner of 21 years, Rosalyn Coleman Williams. Together they have created over 50 film projects including features, documentaries and narrative short films.

Craig just finished his first gig writing on the staff of a TV show. He just completed production of “GAME NITE” a feature film he wrote and produced, directed by Tony Award Winner Tonya Pinkins and starring Shamika Cotton and Jamie Lincoln Smith.

Craig was part of the prestigious 2021-22 WarnerMedia Discovery Discovery Access Writers Program (formerly the HBO All Access Writers Program.) Chosen one of 20 writers from over four thousand applicants, he created an original 30-minute TV Pilot. 

Craig has many scripts in various stages of development including the award winning one-hour TV pilot “How Ya Like Me Now,” about the ‘80s rap rivalry between Kool Moe Dee and LL Cool J, “Christmas In The Dollhouse, a Movie Musical and a 30-minute dramedy inspired by his mother finding her long lost sister when they were both in their 60’s. His latest TV pilot “Call Me Daddy” has won praises from Gail Lerner (EP Blackish, Will and Grace) Liz Garcia (Showrunner, P-Valley) and Diane Ruggerio-Wright (Showrunner, iZombie, Veronica Mars.)

He’s most excited about the upcoming feature film he’s producing “Weapons For Peace” that has  Academy Award nominee Judd Hirsch and Yaya Dacosta attached. That film will shoot in Paris and Dublin this summer.  Another feature film he wrote and is producing “Hanging By A Thread” has Academy Award Winner Viola Davis attached as Executive Producer and is projected to shoot early 2024. 

Craig is a huge proponent of educating screenwriters in a way that will empower them to write the stories they want to tell. He’s taught writing for Film and TV at Wesleyan University. He has led workshops and seminars for educational institutions and film festivals around the country. Upcoming, The Essence Film Festival in New Orleans (July 2023). He’s a mentor for Women of Color Unite’s Mentorship Program, The Craft Institute, and for teen filmmakers at Reel Works Mentorship Program in Brooklyn. Craig single handedly runs the Facebook group, Black Screenwriters, with over twenty thousand members.

Craig and his extraordinarily beautiful and patient wife Rosalyn have a spirited 18 year old son and they make their life in the heart of New York City.
