NEW YORK, USA // STACY PETERSON has a gift for finding the authentic and emotional core of every film she edits. She is a thoughtful observer who is able to deftly translate nuanced perspectives into compelling stories. She is drawn to projects that focus on dynamic and original narratives, uplift underrepresented voices, and document life in an honest way. This can be seen in her award-winning work for Gillette 'Your Best Never Comes Easy', short films for the Nike 'Dream Crazier' series, as well as empowering Pride films for Equinox and Pantene.
In 2020, Stacy was shortlisted for the Shots Americas Editor of the Year award & received praise across multiple platforms for her Klay Thompson short film for Kaiser Permanente, “Above the Waves” including a Clio for Film Craft.
Stacy moved to NY to start her editing career shortly after graduating with a film degree from Northwestern University. She is a proud member of Free The Work and over the years Stacy has collaborated with directors Floyd Russ of Tool, Savanah Leaf of Park Pictures, Elle Ginter of Sanctuary, as well as agencies Wieden+Kennedy, Townhouse, Anomaly, Droga5, and Translation.
