We try to come up with ideas all day every day. Pitch them, script them, draw them, send them out and get them produced, ultimately.  We work on projects for big and small screens, from commercials and documentaries to tv series and feature films. Through our many years in the industry both in the U.S. and Europe we have made contacts with some of the most experienced people in the field.

Finding the finest cast and film crew, along with writing a compelling script, is the essential beginning process.


The greatest difficulty of producing film and video content is the filming stage. Our team is fast and well organized having produced hundreds of hours of television and film. Maintining a project’s initial vision, essence and intuition is our main goal, along with a sane obsession for originality and aesthetics.


Our projects have featured the industry’s most talented and recognized editors and composers (Ennio Morricone and Enzo Meconi among others). Sound, music, design, editing, color-correcting is where the final and most magical process of storytelling happens. Feel Film’s post-production facilities are equipped with the latest technology for non-linear edits, color correction, compositing and 3-d elaboration.
