Director Biography - Stacey Cochran

Stacey Cochran (Ph.D.) is an associate professor at the University of Arizona who studies writing, psychology, cinema, and culture, and makes films exploring identity, perceptions of reality, and the complex dynamics of love. Probably best known as the author of the novel Eddie & Sunny, which was adapted into a feature-length film of the same name starring Gabriel Luna (HBO's The Last of Us; Terminator: Dark Fate) and Joanna Vanderham (Cinemax's Warrior), Summerhaven: the Series marks Stacey's professional directorial debut.

The pilot episode of Summerhaven was awarded Best of Arizona Film on May 1, 2023 at the 31st annual Arizona International Film Festival in its first festival submission and official selection. Our plans are to target marketplace events at the Galway International Film Festival, Gotham Week's Project Market, Berlinale Talent Campus, Rotterdam Coproduction Market, Ontario Creates International Financing Forum, and the American Film Market in Los Angeles, as well as to continue to submit to film festivals around the world.

Director Statement

I am dedicated to diversity and inclusion in filmmaking and honoring and respecting the history of the cinematic arts. My passion is creativity and teamwork and helping others to reach their greatest potential. My goal as a director is to make audiences think and to interpret what is real and what isn’t. While the inner workings of the mind and what might be called the supernatural can be unsettling, my main agenda as a director is to make audiences question the nature of reality… and of love. And to ideally come to terms with what those mean to them in order to deepen their sense of peace, wonder, and amazement with our world and with one another.
