Craig Hookings; Affectionately christened “Dave” or “Mini Craig” by the Mad Dogs crew as we simply have too many Craig’s nowadays.
Craig started an apprenticeship with Maddogs Television in September 2018. We first encountered Craig when he joined us for a one week work experience stint in July 2017. He clearly impressed as within that week Craig gained his first Broadcast TV credit as a studio camera operator! Aged 15! It was a locked off wide shot, but he nailed it.
Just over a year later, Craig joined the Maddogs staff ranks as an apprentice. He continues to learn and develop his television production skills each day. Craig also makes a blinding cup of tea.
Craig has quickly become a vital member of the warehouse team here at The Dog House. Younger and taller than all of us, Craig will no doubt have a very successful career in the television industry. Craig turned 18 in April 2020 and is available to hire as a runner.
Craig has played the drums since he was 8!
