Stacey Holderbach (Executive Producer) began her professional career at Landmark Theatres developing advertising campaigns for independent, foreign, and arthouse films while pursuing a degree in Television Production at Loyola Marymount University. She gained further experience developing advertising campaigns for Sony Pictures and Sony Pictures Classics, assisting in the release of critically acclaimed films such as Men with Guns, Buffalo 66, The Apostle, The Spanish Prisoner, 8mm, and many others.

With over a decade of experience in budgeting, fundraising, financial management, and a strong entrepreneurial spirit, Stacey brings to the Department of Cinema and Power not only the skills to further the mission of the small production company, but also the passion and commitment to ensure its success.
Stacey holds a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from the University of Georgia’s prestigious Henry W. Grady College of Journalism and a Master of Fine Arts in Television Production from Loyola Marymount University.
