Hey, I'm Johnny!

Youngstown, Ohio

Johnny Chechitelli is a filmmaker from Youngstown, Ohio. A film graduate of Full Sail University, Johnny attained over a decade of on-set experience in movies & television shows in Los Angeles and would go on to Direct the 2010 feature documentary Youngstown: Still Standing before eventually moving back to his hometown to make movies in 2016. 


The following year, Johnny successfully raised over $8,000 for his first narrative scripted film Worst. Christmas. Ever. through Seed and Spark's inaugural Hometown Heroes Rally. As Writer & Director, Johnny oversaw a crew of 20 people and filmed the dark Christmas comedy over the course of 14 days, entirely in Youngstown, Ohio and the surrounding Mahoning Valley. 


With Worst. Christmas. Ever. nearing completion in post-production, Johnny is looking ahead to his next feature film; an original horror story called The Domovoy.
