ABOUT FELT FILMS
Once more with feeling...
Felt Films was established in 2015 by Michael Nardelli. A lifelong film buff, Michael studied cinema and television at the University of Southern California. His brother Tim Nardelli, a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design, is also a partner. Felt Films is a full-service production company devoted to the creation of feature films, television series, short films and web content made to enlighten and entertain.
As a filmmaker and storyteller, Michael hopes to continue the legacy of the artists who inspired him as a child and transformed him into a lifelong cinephile – Hitchcock, Kubrick and Spielberg, to name a few.
Nardelli grew up on a steady rotation of The Twilight Zone series, Alien franchise, Back to the Future, Star Wars, Star Trek, 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Goonies – just some of the stories that left a lasting impression on him and remain a constant influence and source of inspiration.
With Felt Films, Michael aims to create the same provocative storytelling that inspired him in his youth, and continue to enthrall him as an adult. The company’s focus is the creation of a diverse slate of original, character-driven genre content that is culturally relevant and emotionally resonant.
“Drama is life with the dull bits cut out.”
– Alfred Hitchcock
