Stacy Heatherly moved to Nebraska in 1979. Her extensive experience in the film industry began as a make-up artist, hair stylist, and actor. She is also an author, having written a book about personal empowerment and enlightenment.
In 2009 she combined her passions for film, empowerment, and community into a film-based non-profit organization. Digg Site Productions produces documentaries to raise money for a summer film camp for 10-12 and high school level students. Student’s produce 15 minute short films that are screened at the Annual White Light City Film Festival. Scholarships are awarded to the students by local contributing colleges and universities. The non-profit and its film camp continue to grow every year.
She is commissioner of the Eastern Nebraska Film Office, which is dedicated to developing and nurturing a film-friendly community and infrastructure in Nebraska.
Stacy lives in Fremont with her husband, Ken, and her dog, Jeb.
