About

Shivers Above Madness LTD is a London based production company dedicated to creating original and entertaining content, as well as supporting new and up-and-coming artists.

Shivers Above Madness has been active since 2009 in the form of collaboration among professionals lead by Ruggero Dalla Santa, and was formally registered as a company in 2014.

The first two productions were stage plays performed at the Clifftown Studios in Southend-on-Sea, UK, in 2009 and 2010: Inferno 5th, an adaptation of G.H.Boker’s Francesca da Rimini and Dante’s Inferno; and Hector, an original play narrating the story of the fight between Hector and Achilles from Homer’s Iliad. Both plays were performed to public and professional accolades and praise.

Inferno 5th was also produced into an in-studio feature length movie.

In 2012, Shivers Above Madness produced two short movies, The Boss and Speed, the latter successfully premiered at Kino London to public acclaim.

At the beginning of 2012, Shivers Above Madness added another business arm to its core operation, that of a showreel-making business under the name One Foot in the Door Showreels, specialising in showreels from scratch for actors. This business provides a turn-key writing, shooting and editing facility of three scenes per actor. To date, One Foot in the Door Showreels has produced the equivalent of two feature length movies in finished material.

In 2014, Shivers Above Madness produced WANT, the directorial debut of Jeff Stewart (The Bill), currently in the process of being submitted to festivals.
