Life in the Derby

by Craig Obligacion Wilson

A Southern California film auteur based in Los Angeles with roots in the San Diego theater scene and a new focus on streaming television, Craig Wilson has decades of experience working with actors, creating stories, and weaving teams of artists together for a singular vision. In his memoir, he details his early days directing for the stage, his move to the world of L.A. independent film, and his involvement with the Filipino-American community. Craig describes his creative process while waxing personal philosophies, navigating Hollywood friendships, and maintaining a family torn between old world tradition and a new generation of free thinkers. This memoir is a must read for budding artists looking for a veteran insider's view on the rush and heartbreak of show business.
