Joe Neurauter (born 1977) is an Austrian-born independent film producer best known for his work on All the Boys Love Mandy Lane (2006) and The Wackness (2008) with Keith Calder and Felipe Marino.

Career[edit]

Neurauter graduated from the University of Southern California's (USC) Peter Stark Producing Program in 2004 and went on to form a production company, Occupant Films, with fellow USC graduates Keith Calder and Felipe Marino in 2005.[1] The three producers joined together because Marino says that they share "similar entrepreneurial spirits".[2] Neurauter, Calder and Marino found their first script, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane by Jacob Forman, through a contact in USC's writing department within a week of founding the company.[2] After its completion, the film was screened at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival and was bought by The Weinstein Company though it was re-sold and has yet to be released in the United States.[1] Their second project was The Wackness, a collaboration with Jonathan Levine, who had directed All the Boys Love Mandy Lane.[3] On working with Levine a second time, Calder said that "We want to continue working with strong, creative partners and build a long, lasting relationship with them." Neurauter remarked that ""We saw a lot doors open once we sold Mandy Lane, but it's a whole different level to have a movie [The Wackness] released. It gives you a totally different perception in the community." Having completed two feature films, Marino said that "The goal in the upcoming years is to do two to three movies per year."[1] In 2008, he was named one of Variety '​s "10 Producers to Watch" alongside Calder and Marino.[1]

With Calder and Marino, he has a film in post-production, The Key Man by Peter Himmelstein; Peep World, to be directed by Barry Blaustein; a police thriller written by Pat Healy[disambiguation needed] and directed by Joe and Anthony Russo; and is developing a third script by Levine called Positive.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Neurauter was born in Innsbruck, Austria, though he is now based in Los Angeles. His biggest sources of inspiration as a producer are Martin Scorsese's films Goodfellas (1990) and Casino (1995), because "they were visually stunning, had strong characters and great storytelling".[1]
