" We realized that one of our favorite moments was a long take - about 50 seconds - of Stacey’s eyes watching the monitor, which didn’t really fit into the short we had in mind; this shot was supposed to be a quick insert, but her performance here was just too good. We decided to rewrite all of the offscreen dialogue, re-edit, shoot some more footage on an iPhone; then we rewrote and re-edited a couple more times and boxed ourselves into the final film.
Stacey Weckstein is a New York City based actress.
She has had the pleasure of studying with Bob Krakower, Wendy Makkena, Ted Sluberski, Tony Spiridakis and Shannon Goldman. Since moving to New York Stacey has completed Shane Ann Younts’ Voice and Speech program.
Born and raised in a small town in Oklahoma, Stacey started her performance career dancing to Disney tunes in her driveway. As a classically trained actress, Stacey has had the opportunity to work with Shakespeare greats such as Tina Packer and Dennis Krausnick. Stacey is currently studying singing with Eric Michael Gillett.
Stacey is happy she no longer has to loiter outside dog parks hoping for a chance to pet a golden retriever. On July 3rd 2015 she became the proud mother of a Bidawee Rescue dog named Cece. Now in her free time, she enjoys going on hikes with Cece and friends. A cat lover too, Stacey has a spunky Craigs’ List kitty named Billie.
