About me
Hey! I’m Rick, and I specialize in moving image and sound. I have worked in the advertising industry, between London and Italy, for more than a decade in the creative sector as a designer, director and artist in addition to running my own studio. My key specialties are motion graphics, animation, art direction and sound design. Commercially, I have worked for TV, cinema and the web, while my experimental art films have been exhibited internationally in festivals and galleries. Throughout my career, I have had the possibility to collaborate and direct at different levels in the production chain, developing a comprehensive vision - from creative briefs with clients to pitching ideas, from art direction to execution, revisions and final deliveries. Curiosity, experimentation and a desire to constantly learn and improve the quality of my work have always driven my approach.

  • Amnios Somnia
    Amnios SomniaSynopsis: A metaphysical journey into the worst dream's nightmare: reality. Reality that is before and after, that is always one, a boundary in between the birth of a dream and the death of another. Blurring from the crystal of reality's barriers to the genesis of the unreal, this metaphorical exploration moves through evocative atmospheres reaching the enchanted gardens of hopes and desires. Emerging from this surreal apnea, naivety and purity are sacrificed among the wheels of experience. "
