tom waits & terry gilliam voice 'monster of nix'
ps yay.. mini hand claps from me with eyeballs opening big looking to the left. this looks fairytale fantastic! coming spring 2011
"tom waits and director terry gilliam will appear in a new animated 30 minute short entitled the monster of nix. the existential fairy tale by dutch filmmaker rosto tells the story of willy, a troubled boy who fights the destructive force of an all-devouring monster in the village of nix. the film score features legendary eyeball art rockers the residents. waits lends his voice to the character virgil, a terrifying giant pitch-black swallow.
as director rosto explains: “tom waits was always the main inspiration for the dark and theatrical appearance of virgil. but I had never expected to actually have the privilege to work with tom. the results are gobsmacking…” taken from youtube
