The monster of Nix voice

Tom Waits joins the voice cast of The Monster of Nix, the latest film by Dutch artist/filmmaker Rosto.

The Monster of Nix is a 30-minute animated musical which tells the story of a troubled boy who fights the destructive force of an all-devouring monster in the village of Nix. Tom Waits gives his voice to one of the main characters, Virgil, a terrifying giant pitch-black swallow.

'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."

This dark fairy tale is scheduled to premiere this summer at the Annecy Animated Film Festival in France.
