Director/artist Rosto, and his studio Rosto A.D, are well-known for music videos, television-work and independent short films.
The short (the rise and fall of the legendary) Anglobilly Feverson was a festival sensation in 2002. The next short film Jona/Tomberry, winner of the Grand Prix Canal+ at the Cannes Filmfestival 2005, concluded a trilogy of Mind My Gap films. Mind My Gap is Rosto A.D’s mixed media project that started with an online graphic novel (still running on rostoAD.com), and expanded with music and print as well as films. A DVD of the trilogy and related works was released.
Next was the first of an intended tetralogy of music films featuring rock and roll demons Thee Wreckers: No Place Like Home. In the meantime Rosto worked on his most ambitious project so far, a 30 minute animated existentialist musical called The Monster of Nix. It was released in 2011 and featured vocal contributions from the Residents, Terry Gilliam and Tom Waits while the score was preformed by the illustrious Metrople Orkest.
The Monster won many awards and screened at countless festivals.
Currently "Lonely Bones", the next Wreckers film is waiting to premiere in 2013 while a third film in the series is being developed.
