Praise for Ripples
Genuine display of our current reality. Beautifully directed, beautifully written, this is amazing. Entertaining and emotional, informational and educational. Well done.
Too many deaths. Too many wrongfully accused. Too much pain caused to people because of the colour of the skin.
I would like to invite you to watch a Short Film where Spoken Word Artist Paul Gialo and I teamed up to create a visual poem about being black in Britain, the racism he notices in the country, the importance of the Black Lives Matter Protests and his own personal experiences with racism. This isn’t a trend, this is much more. Feel the ripples of prosperity.
In Secondary school, I was that kid that seemed to never be paying attention. Seemingly in my own world of drawings and act structures for scripts I was writing, when I should’ve been focussing on the lesson in-front of me. I’ve had an urge to tell stories since writing my first short story at eleven, which I strongly believe is the worst story that’s graced this world. But, I was told by a great mentor to keep trying until I “Fail Better”.
When I left school, I immediately knew I wanted to conquer the world of directing. After building my first directing my first play for the National Theatre Connections festival, and getting instant gratification of praise from others, I was hooked. I am so happy that I made that decision. I do the work I do because I love it. I like the industry. I like the people I meet. I like to talk the industry. I embrace the metaphors and symbolism. I like to make the world a better place for an hour or two.

A film about perspective, family and cannabis. A single mother grapples with the antics of her teenage son, putting their relationship to the test. After a trying day, can a change of heart bring them closer together?
Telling a story without words presented a rewarding challenge. It lets us reach as many people as possible while exploring the cinematic medium at its purist. Without dialogue, we used camera movement to create a rhythm. The film explores the theme of perspective – and crucially how perspectives can change – so we crafted an image system around this; making frequent use of POV; giving perspective to characters at important moments – and life to the inanimate objects that are key to conveying the narrative.
To enhance the ideas of shifting perspective further, my friend and standout cinematographer Matt suggested we introduce some heavy lens breathing (an affectation of older lenses) and after some research we opted to shoot on Hawk V-Series anamorphics. Though this beautiful glass presented endless (truly endless) challenges during production, it allowed us to contrast the different dimensions in the frame. I like playing with depth; and these lenses created a clear distinction between fore- middle and background. A huge thank you to Arri for all their support.
The subject matter is sure to irk some viewers, but it’s important to recognise that there is no clear message to this film. It is a portrait; taking an objective look at a perfectly ordinary family – and how drugs enter into the equation in a way that’s true to life today, but without passing comment about what these events mean. It’s up to the audiences to decide how they feel about the choices these characters make. With the film, I hope to add to the ongoing debate about drugs in British society, but mainly I hope to entertain as many viewers as possible.
If the film finds an audience, it will be the first in a trilogy of projects that explores drug use in Britain; how it is now and how, for better or for worse, it might be in the future.

You can’t outrun your demons, they’re always by your side.
2020 has been a year filled with uncertainty, anxiety and bags of spare time, which I found to be the perfect catalyst for starting production on my first horror short. This is the first of (hopefully) many horror shorts that my partner and I will be producing together; inspired by the simple things we find truly frightening.

Dante: A Replication (2020)
Horror, Science Fiction, Thriller, Mystery, Drama
Written, Directed and Produced by Diego Andaluz
Starring: Dante Andaluz
Original Score: Ben Winfield & Gasper Muzenic
Visual Effects Touchups: Michael Mianowski
Sound Design & Sound Mixing: Lukas Losking, Bo Jandlas, & Diego Andaluz
Director of Photography, Editor, and all other positions: Diego Andaluz
A man discovers the source of a mysterious call, leading him towards a terrifying discovery of Replication as his reality begins to unravel… HIS WORLD IS ABOUT TO CHANGE
Created in isolation by teenage latino-american filmmaker Diego Andaluz over two hours with just an iPhone and no traditional filmmaking equipment, DANTE: A Replication is the first film in the Replication series, a series of shorts revolving around an alternate world where nothing is as it seems, and was inspired by the unconventional structure of PARASITE, the surreal works of DAVID LYNCH, the unilateral production techniques of PRIMER , and elements of MR. ROBOT as well as Jordan Peele’s horror films US and GET OUT….
Raised in a multicultural household of Mexican and Puerto-Rican descent, Diego Andaluz fell in love with cinema at the age of 12, and despite being diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at an early age, he was able to learn to overcome his challenges and turn them into strengths, finding the determination to begin making his own short films as well as founding a production company to help others: Andaluz Films. Due to his unorthodox upbringing, Diego’s dramatic films tend to be ambitious, uniquely out-of-the-box, and surreal yet grounded, while dealing with themes of duality, instability, and familiar bonds. You can contact Diego at firstname.lastname@example.org
Andaluz Films was founded by filmmaker Diego Andaluz to give young, passionate, and marginalized filmmaking talents an avenue through which they can have the resources to execute their bold and experimental visions to revolutionize the filmmaking industry, one film at a time. DANTE: A Replication is both Andaluz Films’ and Diego Andaluz’s first ever film.

After hearing a daughter yell at her parents that she’d rather go out and have fun at night than spend time with her family, Ripper would take it upon himself to teach the girl a lesson. The lesson that would make her regret her decision.
My name is Oswaldo Andrade a kid from Brooklyn. I’m 19 and going into college this fall. Honestly it wasn’t easy growing up when everyone kept telling me “FILM!? You have to be an American to at least have a chance! You ain’t gonna get selected because you have a latino name, and also a guy with vitiligo. GOOD LUCK but your wasting your time.” I was afraid of the path I selected and the things I was told, but I told myself, “I’m young. I could fail as many times as I can but I have to try my dream life of becoming a successful director.” This is my dream, I have to do this to at least give hope to other latinos that we can make it big as a filmmaker . During this pandemic I really thought that I was done for. No more movie’s to make this year. I really did not know if I was gonna be able to do anything, honestly, but then the idea came to risk the filming. I set a date to shoot the film, I sent out applicants for actors but did not receive an answer. So I contacted some elementary school friends and we ended up doing the film. “RIPPER” was born and we did it on a budget of 0$ and with an iPhone 7.
