The independent spirit of the folk movement has morphed into a creative space where EMMY® winning composers John Nau and Andrew Feltenstein (ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES, SPOILS OF BABYLON, THE HOUSE) work their musical magic in a studio hidden away in Venice, CA in a space that once belonged to Joni Mitchel. Both come from a performance background. Nau was the pianist for the multi-platinum recording artists Hootie and The Blowfish and Feltenstein played and studied jazz. Together theyncompose and produce music for film, television and commercials. They have also written and produced an MC out of Brooklyn, Crown and the M.O.B, album to debut summer of 2017.
A project for BudTV – a series of short films and sketches for Budweiser — would lead to them working with Matt Piedmont, an Emmy Award winning writer for Saturday Night Live (SNL) and writer for the popular website FUNNY OR DIE. Piedmont would enlist Feltenstein and Nau to compose for his web series THE CARPET BROTHERS, starring SNL alums David Spade and Tim Meadows and BRICK NOVAX’S DIARY, a winner of a Jury Prize in Short Filmmaking at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.
Nau and Feltenstein’s film and TV credits also include ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES, starring Will Ferrell and Christina Applegate, the IFC series SPOILS OF BABYLON (for which they earned their first EMMY nomination), BETTER LIVING THROUGH CHEMISTRY, starring Olivia Wilde and Sam Rockwell, THE BRONZE for director Bryan Buckley, SLEEPING WITH OTHER PEOPLE starring Jason Sudeikis and Allison Brie, the Lauren Greenfield film KIDS AND MONEY, the BIG LOVE Christmas Album, and BACHELORETTE for director Leslye Headland, and the upcoming films, DABKA for Bryan Buckley and THE HOUSE with Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell Summer 2017
