Stardust Names Michael Neithardt to Run New York StudioVeteran producer's credits span the worlds of feature films, television and theater (January 31, 2006)
Stardust Studios hires Michael Neithardt as its new senior producer
Neithardt began his career as the assistant to former Miramax Films' co-chairman Bob Weinstein, where he worked closely with the independent film icon during the production and release of many acclaimed films, including Academy Award-winners "Shakespeare in Love" and “Good Will Hunting.” Neithardt went on to produce an as-yet unreleased independent horror feature entitled "Harwood," while also working in production management posts for New Line Cinema, Time Warner and VH1. In 2003, he established Palmy Inn, his own creative production company, where he wrote, produced and directed commercials, music videos, television programs and promotional packages for SonyBMG, AOL and a variety of other clientele – while also producing an Off-Off Broadway production of Stephen Belber’s "Tape."
“Michael gets along great with Stardust's crew and clients alike,” said Stardust executive producer Eileen Doherty. “He has produced a long list of projects that required him to wear a lot of hats, and his poised handling of those jobs earned our complete trust. He’s the perfect fit for running our New York office.”
In his new role, Neithardt is responsible for the overall operation of Stardust’s Manhattan studio in SoHo, and he will oversee each project for the New York studio. "Stardust is a tight knit family with incredibly talented artists,” Neithardt said. “The work that they do is a collaborative effort that I'm excited to be a part of and grow with."
