Andy Stauffer brings to his film and video projects over 20 years of experience producing documentaries, indie narrative films, spots, direct marketing pieces, corporate identity and branding vehicles, live broadcasts, and more.
Prior to returning to freelance producing, Stauffer was with Morgan Stanley’s video department for eight years. He joined the group in 2000 as a Senior Producer and the Broadcast Facilities Manager for the brand-new state-of-the-art studio facility the firm had built in the World Trade Center.
From 2007-2008 Stauffer was manager of the video group, with a staff of 7 producers.
Earlier in his career, he was a staff producer for the Episcopal Church's national office, producing and directing programs for church members across the country. He travelled with documentary crews to such locations as Haiti, Honduras, South Africa, Kenya, Jordan, Jerusalem, and the Philippines, as well as many urban and rural settings in the US. His work earned an Emmy nomination and other awards.
In the indie film arena, Stauffer produced the short film, Little Man, which played at dozens of festivals (a feature-length version of the short, Favorite Son, starring Pablo Schreiber and Connor Paulo, is currently in festivals). A full-length feature, The Road From Erebus, was distributed by New Line Television and broadcast on Showtime; he was co-producer of this psychological thriller.
