Stacy Cohen

Department: Founder, Director-Harvardwood Helps

STACY COHEN is a 20-year veteran of the film industry who has held multiple senior executive positions at studio-based production companies and has developed and produced feature films in both the independent world and within the studio system. For the last four years Cohen has served as President of Production at Warner Bros.-based Roserock Films. She is currently packaging talent on two feature scripts she developed and recently set up a children’s animated television series at Cookie Jar Entertainment.

Prior to her time at Roserock Films, Cohen spent five years as a producer and Senior Vice President of Production at Gaylord Films/Pandora, a co-financing, co-producing partner based at Warner Bros. Pictures, where she oversaw development and production of a slate of feature film projects.

During her tenure at Gaylord Films, Cohen spent five months on location in Africa producing DUMA (Warner Bros., 2005), a family adventure film about the friendship between a boy and the orphaned cheetah he rescues and returns to the wild. The film was directed by Carroll Ballard (The Black Stallion, Fly Away Home), and stars Hope Davis, Campbell Scott and Eamonn Walker. DUMA was shot on over 75 locations on every type of terrain across South Africa, and Cohen had the great fortune to direct 2nd Unit on the Makgadikgadi Salt Pan and in the Okavango Delta in Botswana, one of the wildest and most remote places on earth. DUMA was named the “Best Film of 2005” by LA Times film critic Kenneth Turan, and won multiple industry awards.

Next Cohen was off to Kentucky as Executive Producer of DREAMER (DreamWorks, 2005), a family drama about a down-on-his-luck horse trainer, his young daughter and gruff father, who work together to heal a broken-down racehorse, thereby healing the rifts in their own family. The film stars Kurt Russell, Dakota Fanning, Kris Kristofferson, David Morse and Elizabeth Shue.

Previous to that, Cohen served as Executive Producer on Warner Bros.' WHITE OLEANDER (2002), starring Michelle Pfeiffer, Renee Zellweger, Robin Wright Penn and Alison Lohman.

Before her time at Gaylord Films, Cohen worked with producer Hunt Lowry for four years at his Disney-based production company as Vice President of Development.

Prior to joining Lowry, Cohen worked in the independent feature world in various production capacities on such films as Robert Altman's THE PLAYER and Bryan Singer's Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury prize-winning PUBLIC ACCESS.

Cohen hails from Queens, NY, grew up in Great Neck on Long Island, and graduated from Harvard College in Cambridge, MA, where she studied the history of architecture and wrote her thesis on Frank Capra and IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE. Cohen is Co-Founder/Co-President and Board Member of Harvardwood, an education-oriented non-profit organization that fosters career opportunities in the arts, media and entertainment for students, alumni, faculty and staff, and now boasts nearly 3,000 members across the United States and the globe. Cohen took most of 2008 off to volunteer for the Obama campaign in California, Texas and New Mexico. She is Team Leader of 3OBARACK, which organizes grassroots efforts in California’s 30th Congressional District.

As the Director of Harvardwood Helps, Stacy is responsible for deepening Harvardwood’s commitment to community service. She raises awareness about causes of interest and seeks out opportunities to provide community service events to Harvardwood members.
