'Deep Shock' launches the promotional teaser

The great day has finally come and I'm very thrilled... After years of work, ads and referrals, the curse that accompained this short film is finally broken! It's with great pride that I show you the first 4K images of 'Deep Shock' through a teaser that pays homage to the famous "Italian Giallo" (Thrilling). We start from the great creator of this genre Mario Bava ('Blood and Black Lace', 1964) to the Master Dario Argento ('Deep Red', 1975), until the images of my new short film.
Before starting, I want to thank Daniel Salinas (editor), Miguel Serón (colorist), Giulio De Gaetano (music) and Christian Valente (sound).
I must also remember that all images remain the property of their respective authors.
And now it's finally time to switch off the lights and turn on the subwoofer to the maximun power... Keep your eyes on the screen, open your ears and enjoy the teaser (click below or here).
Welcome in the world of "Giallo"!!!
