Daphne Cottrell

A soon-to-be graduate of Santa Clara University’s film program, Daphne is the newest addition to the Four Winds team. Although she didn’t officially declare her passion for filmmaking until college, Daphne does attribute her love of storytelling to watching the endless screenings of Toy Story on VHS when she was five.

Daphne is still in the honeymoon phase with production and loves every aspect of it from preproduction to editing. Her favorite place, though, is the writer’s room, and she basks in the glow of a well crafted story.

Daphne just returned from a semester around the world where she visited four continents and learned many things – most importantly, that a Moroccan camel named Ahmed is her spirit animal. When she’s not at the Four Winds office or on the set of her senior capstone project, Daphne can be found singing loudly in her car or dreaming of her next worldly adventure.
