I was fighting that a bit too. However, the more you craft, the more you get the MAG points, which increases your level on the construction yard, which offers more things to craft. But with the added MAG points, those awards produce more jobs and more film.
It's almost a vicious cycle, but I've started looking at this approach as I felt I wasn't keeping up with the pace of the game. (However I did check my sources and I'm actually a bit (3 days) ahead of the projected timeline). So, honestly, I do think crafting is the way to go, as the awards pile up, you'll be able to eventually craft those things you really want, in an easier time frame.
(And thanks to my keeping up with the monorail crafting, I have raised enough donuts to get Dr. Hibberts Island, which gave a crapload (540, I think) of MAG points.)
