Dutch artist and filmmaker Rosto is well know for creating intriguing, dark themed work which spans multiple forms of media. His latest, The Monster of Nix, is an existential animated musical fairytale, suitable for kids from 10 to 100. Rosto joins us to discuss not pinning yourself down to a single creative area and how to go about creating a musical that doesn’t suck after surviving five years of development hell.
The Monster of Nix (2011)

I don’t consider myself necessarily to be an animator or a filmmaker or whatever. I call myself an artist because there’s no other word.
