Darcy Totten is a multi-faceted Producer and Production Coordinator with extensive experience in the fashion, film, publishing and entertainment fields. Her exacting nature and exquisite eye for detail are the backbone of her approach to any project, making stunning visual sensibilities mixed with clockwork precision the hallmark of any project she approaches.
Her strength as a visual editor and strong coordinating presence have landed her coveted spots in a variety of production positions ranging from New York Fashion Week to film sets across the country.
Her work on Independent film projects such as “Salamander” by Award-winning Director Jen Heck which was nominated for a 2009 Iris Prize and Terrence Nance’s half-animated feature, “How Would You Feel” caught the attention of New York’s underground while her work as a music video Producer pushed boundaries. When her no-budget video collaboration with cinematographer Ned Stresen-Rueter for recording artist Jasper James received glowing reviews by MTV.com, it was subsequently picked up by LOGO networks and can now also be seen on VH1.com and Spike.com.
Darcy has worked with fashion and celebrity photographers from all across the globe to produce some of the most stunning commercial imagery available today for Corbis, Prosper, Nylon, thewashingtonpost.com, Vice, Bizarre and others. She holds an M.A. in Photojournalism from the University of Texas at Austin and a B.A. in Studio Art Photography from Mills College in California. After years of photographing, running shoots, editing imagery, and coordinating film projects and events, she now lends her talents as a superb creative production manager to any project that lends a challenge.
