Support independent filmmaking by buying straight from the source. Here are some goodies to get you started. Rick has been known to autograph DVDs and T-Shirts every now and then, so if you ask nicely we might be able to get him to do it.

We accept payment via PayPal (you can also use your credit card this way) or bank transfer. If you’re in the US and really want to use one of those archaic things called a ‘check,’ let us know what you want, and we’ll tell you where to send that little piece of paper. Send all orders to info@rickfilms.de.
