József Nepp (Csepel, 23 June 1934) cartoonist, screenwriter, designer (animator), Hungarian composer.
Between 1952 and 1957 he was a student of decorative painting at the College of Applied Arts. From 1957 he worked at the Pannónia Film Studio: between 1957 and 1961 as a background artist, from 1961 to the company director. His films are characterized by his surprising humor and expressive characters.
Initially he worked with Tibor Csermák and then with Attila Dargay. He recalled that his first independent work was the commercial video of Daru Cigarette. He was appointed director at the beginning of the sixties. The 8-minute short film Passione, shot in 1961, became known for his professional production, but also for the formation of his hero. It became the prototype of the later figure of Gusztáv. Later, Marcell Jankovics and Attila Dargay played a decisive role in the creation of the "Gustav phenomenon". József Gémes and Zsolt Richly also collaborated.
