Andria facilitated a deal for NRDC, the largest environmental lobbying organization in the USA, to consult with the Principality of Monaco to “green” all events in Monaco, including the film festival and eventually the Monte Carlo Grand Prix. As a result, the IETFF received immediate attention in the European press as the first “green” film festival, and NRDC continues to consult with the Principality of Monaco on their environmental sustainability.

In 2008, Andria created software for the film industry with a group of European Investors. The software was entertainment specific, cloud based software designed for production and development. It was endorsed by WB Physical Production head, Steve Papazian, for use by its producers on the lot, many of whom used the early “beta version”. Concurrently, Andria directed her first short film entitled, A SCROOGE MEETS CINDERELLA STORY…, a comedy about the chaotic life of a Hollywood Producer, which was also a promo for the software. The software, called Producer’s Utopia, and the short film premiered and were featured at the American Film Market (AFM) in 2008. The economic crash of 2008, however, prohibited the European investors from proceeding. The software concept and short reverted back to Andria in 2009.
