No Problem

Craig Welch was born in 1948 in Windsor, Ontario. He originally studied graphic design at the Centre for Creative Studies in Detroit. After a brief foray into the world of design, he got fed up. Instead, he opened a bookstore and ran it for eight years.
In 1984, Craig enrolled in the animation program at Sheridan College in Ontario. There he created his acclaimed film Disconnected, about the consequences of living a routine life. Although he has had exhibitions of drawings and paintings in Toronto galleries, Craig now considers animation to be the perfect medium for self-expression. In addition to commercial animation work, he assisted on the NFB production Peep and the Big Wide World (1988), before directing his first animated film for the NFB, No Problem (1992). The film uses humour in an emotionally provocative way to reach an adult audience.
