Steve Crayne’s first love affair began with movies, when his mom let him play hooky from school to watch The Lost Horizon when he was six years-old. This passion led him to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing from SUNY at Oswego.


He moved to Los Angeles after college and negotiated a deal for the re-release of In Search of Paradise: The Nordhoff and Hall Story and wrote a foreword for the book and a theatrical outline for producer Bernard Schwartz, known for Coal Miner's Daughter.


When the deal fell through, Steve’s passion led him to a long, successful career with a then start-up company, Blockbuster Entertainment.


Said, Rich Ungaro, Executive VP, Domestic Retail for Blockbuster Entertainment, “Steve Crayne played a major role in our success of building a national retail brand because of his tenacity and dedication to getting the job done. He brings an unbridled passion for getting things done and is terrific influence on his co-workers with his positive "we can get this done" attitude. Steve is a pleasure to work with and I deeply appreciate his effort and contribution to our success."
