Cameron Douglas Craig is a professor laureate (2010-2011) in the Department of Geology/Geography at Eastern Illinois University. Mr. Craig currently oversees the Broadcast Meteorology program and works with his meteorology students at WEIUs EMMY award winning news program, “NewsWatch.” In addition to his duties, he created the film production company, Tempestas et Caelum Productions, that allows students to have a platform for creating documentary films for regional PBS stations and classrooms around the world. His newest acquisition is “TCPArts” for the purpose of training students how to film and edit concerts in Doudna and to promote the music department’s talent on a grand scale.
His return to music originates from his youth and as an undergraduate at Indiana State University. A former vocal performance major, Mr. Craig is currently working toward receiving a Master of Arts in Conducting at Eastern Illinois University where he studies with Dr. Rossi. Mr. Craig also writes music that has been used in all of his documentary films.
Mr. Craig’s ultimate goal is to combine all of his fields of study, geography, history, broadcast meteorology and music, to understand the growth, influence and culture of the human spirit to pass on to his students.
