The Monster of Nix
Production Design by Fabrique Fantastique artdirector, Tom Van Gestel.
The Monster of Nix is a 30 minute long animated musical which tells the story of Willy, a troubled boy who fights the destructive force of an all-devouring monster in the village of Nix. The dark fairy tale is as compelling and visually overwhelming as Rosto’s previous films, but this time it’s suitable for kids from 10 to 100. Rosto’s previous films have been described as hyper-intense cinematic experiences. Unconventional stories take place in an apocalyptic universe of surreal landscapes inhabited by dark alter egos.
The film had its world premiere at Annecy Animated Film Festival in 2011 and hits national cinemas and festival screens since then.
The Monster of Nix is the most ambitious film production by Rosto to date. Development of the international co-production has taken more than five years. Main producer Studio Rosto A.D and co-producers Autour de Minuit (France) and CinéTé (Belgium) made the film in association with French broadcaster Canal+ and the Dutch broadcaster AVRO.
