PRESS REVIEWS

 
 
 
 



Among the many audiovisual proposals that the public can take advantage of today, including cinema in the hall, films on streaming platforms and the internet, the new collection of over twenty science fiction, adventure, horror and fantasy films, with 3D special effects, by director Andrea Ricca, is available now online for free. The films have already surpassed 40 million views online, garnering reviews from international press (Starburst Magazine, Rue Morgue Magazine, Scream Horror Magazine, Dread Central, Gruesome Magazine, Film Threat, Horror Movies Ca, Gorezone, Horror Society, Bloody Disgusting, Famous Monsters of Filmland, Fangoria, Sfx Magazine, L'Écran Fantastique etc.)

Fans of science fiction, horror, fantasy and adventure films can enjoy these mini-films with a maximum duration ranging from 5 to 10 minutes, on any device, from tablet to mobile, suitable for quick use on the web.
You can view the entire collection in just over an hour, or simply watch a mini film when you have a few minutes to spare.

Filled with emotion and action, these short films tell of alien abductions, paranormal events and monstrous creatures attacking the tranquility of ordinary people forced to fight for their lives. Made with real-life actors interacting and acting with computer-generated creatures, the films are inspired by both classic and modern science fiction and horror, and by directors such as Spielberg, Zemeckis, Roger Corman, George Lucas etc.
An example of the new ways of communication and expression allowed by new technologies such as the internet and by the increasingly accessible prices of shooting equipment.

Fortunately, despite having been produced with a zero budget and published non-profit, with the sole intent of entertaining and perhaps thrilling the web audience, often with strong women as protagonists, the short films have been very successful with both audiences and critics, exceeding 40 million views overall online and getting positive reviews from the international press. Among the most successful films we remember “Spider Danger”, which tells of a spider that became giant after the fall of a meteorite, with over 8 million viewers, and “Aliens Night” on the theme of alien abductions, with 9 million views.

Andrea Ricca graduated in Sociology and specialized in 3D graphics, made his debut in cinema in 1998. He currently works as a 3D designer, editor and photographer. He has also collaborated on some films for the Giffoni Film Festival. In 2012 he published the book: “SPECIAL EFFECTS LOW BUDGET”. All of his works are zero-budget productions, without a crew; without external contributions or remuneration to the participants. They were made with the only help of an HD camcorder and a computer. Writing, filming, editing, 3D modeling and animation, compositing and post-production were all done by the director himself.

The short films have participated in numerous festivals around the world: Miami Film Festival, Vienna Film Festival, Los Angeles Cine Fest, International Fantastic Film Festival, Cleveland Comic Con,  HorrorCon UK, Fantafestival etc.

All short films can be viewed on the official website or on Amazon Prime.
