About us

Andrés, Ángel, Antonio, Juan, Asier, Fabio, Yon y Bruno. Eight audiovisual communication students. Ok, you know who we are, let us tell you about our Project.

El Arrecife del Diablo is an academic work that does not want to be seen like it. If you are a fan of the audiovisual world you have probably seen other college short films and I am sure that you were aware they were amateur before you finished watching them. We intend to break this handicap by taking care of every last detail and doing research about some elite cinematic references, as we love and are knowledgeable of this art.

Let’s get on with it. What is “El Arrecife del Diablo” really about?

Edward (the protagonist) has inherited from his grandfather a house in a lost village of Innsmouth, but it is not the only thing he will inherit. Henry (the grandfather) made sure before dying that his diary ended on his grandson’s possession. There, he described the relationship he had over a few years with the village that would be his home after his retirement. Edward starts reading the diary after arriving to the village, although perhaps he should have done it before…

This project is an adaptation of one of the worldwide known novels of H. P. Lovecraft, “The Festival”. Lovecraft tales are one of the essential sources of inspiration for mysticism in many classic horror films. The aesthetics this writer describes in his literature makes the environment come alive, so to conquer that atmosphere we have chosen the astonishing and breathtaking lands of Asturias and País Vasco in Spain as locations to film.

Thanks to you, all of this will be possible

With your contributions, we will be able to transform a good idea into a real thing. Costumes are the main thing our budget is going to be used for. We already have publicity agreements for lodging, costume designers and a music composer for our own original soundtrack. The other part of the budget is going to be destined to the actors travelling expenses, and that is all.
