Josh Covitt & Michael Feld - Writers / Directors / Actors
Josh Covitt & Michael Feld are a writing / directing team based in Los Angeles. They met on an adult kickball team and became close friends in the improv comedy community through the Upright Citizens Brigade. Their first short 40 MINUTES OVER MAUI recently finished its festival run, winning numerous awards and is currently featured online as “A Short Film A Day Keeps Anxiety Away” following its headline premiere at Tribeca Film Festival. Currently, the duo is developing multiple projects in both features and television which convey a strong social message with a comedic skew. One is an original feature with Cartel Pictures and Tubi, that throws social media, comedy and horror into a blender making a super-fun cinema cocktail. Josh’s other written work has placed in the final rounds of Nicholl Fellowship, the Austin Film Festival, the PAGE Awards, and consideration for both the Warner Bros. Writers’ Workshop and NBC’s Writers on the Verge. As a performer, he’s appeared on THE MINDY PROJECT, PRETTY LITTLE LIARS, and in dozens of commercials… mostly as a clueless husband / boyfriend. In his spare time he enjoys learning new recipes from meal boxes, playing pickleball with his retiree neighbors, and reminiscing about the time when he ran with Dolph Lundgren on the beach.
