The Furfangs is an amusing sci-fi-horror short-movie, with 3D special effects, that tells the story of mysterious and aggressive creatures from outerspace. The short lasts five minutes and was realized by only two people, the director Andrea Ricca and 3D graphic designer Gennaro Acanfora.
This combined live-action 3D production was completed without a budget and received no external contributions to realise the end result. The Furfangs was created using a MiniDV camera and a computer only, and has received great reviews from the film and CG industry press.
The Furfangs follows on from Ricca’s last production the adventure-fantasy short ‘The Guardian’ which was also produced without a budget and with limited equipment. The Guardian was nominated for Best Independent Production at the Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards.
