In Memoriam: Stacie O’Beirne

Stacie O’Beirne was Sr. Vice President of Front Row Insurance Brokers and a longtime member and supporter of New York Women in Film, New York Production Alliance, and Women in Film & TV Louisiana. Stacie had 30+ years of experience in Film and Television Production Insurance including Errors & Omissions Coverages. She started her career in Los Angeles in 1989 handling several major production companies. During this time, she started a Production Program for a new start up network – Discovery Communications – and handled all Production and Errors & Omissions for Time Warner, Inc. which at the time included Warner Bros., HBO, Turner Broadcasting, Time, Inc., Warner Bros. Records and Warner Chappell Music.

In 1999 she moved to New York. In New York she  developed ‘wrap up’ programs for several Advertising Agencies (TV Commercials) and Record Companies (Music Videos). She also had in-depth knowledge and experience in Reality Television and their unique exposures. Her goal was to assist her clients with all their production insurance needs and helping solve insurance issues. She frequently spoke on panels, and was committed to educating the creative community on the special coverage needed from pre-production through principal photography to distribution. She was a longtime supporter of the NYWIFT Muse Awards, often bringing young up-and-coming filmmakers as her guests to learn and network alongside her.

Stacie lived in the New Jersey suburbs of New York City, and was a beloved wife, mother, and colleague.
