"Italian filmmaker Andrea Ricca successfully channels “creature features”.
What is most impressive is that this zero-budget auteur films his productions on a simple camera and constructs the final effects on a home computer. There is an energy and exuberance to the films that it is impossible not to be engaged by. The effects themselves are equivalent, if not better than many straight-to-DVD releases and the whole short feels very polished. What Ricca is doing is demonstrating that, with some talent and a whole lot of passion and perseverance, anyone can make a film."

EFFETTI SPECIALI LOW BUDGET
Prontuario di computer grafica per cortisti e registi indipendenti.
Con un software di animazione tridimensionale possiamo ricreare qualsiasi cosa, dai personaggi agli oggetti alle ambientazioni, ma come gestire questa materia nella cornice di progetti a basso o a zero budget? Come fare in casa un buon green screen? Come modellare o scaricare direttamente da internet modelli tridimensionali da inserire nel nostro video? Come inserire un oggetto 3d in una ripresa in movimento o far interagire attori in carne e ossa con creature digitali realizzate al computer? Di tutto questo si parla nel primo agile volumetto che esce in Italia sull’argomento, scritto da un autore pluripremiato di corti di fantascienza, fantasy e horror ben conosciuto dalle riviste specializzate d’Oltreoceano.
