Mind My Gap
A feature length animation film by Dutch artist/filmmaker Rosto.
It started with a bunch of rock ‘n’ roll songs, which were adapted into a graphic novel which incarnated online, which spawned a series of (short) films and a collection of songs again. The (online) graphic novel started in 1998 and was concluded in 2014.
After nearly fifteen years of development the graphic novel is now completed. Rosto has managed to adapt his own universe into a long feature film, with a more traditional narrative structure.
Meet Diddybob and Buddybob! Everything seems hunky-dory for the happy presenter duo who live their life on the set of their TV show Living Interior. On air they don’t have the slightest notion of an outside. They live without questions or doubts because everything is taken care of. Until questions start to rise. Who watches their show and most importantly, who are Diddybob and Buddybob really?
Rosto is an artist (art director, animator and composer of his owns musical world) and a pioneer in hybrid films production, experimenting different techniques and ways of telling story in every film, and still keeping his unique graphic universe always strong and coherent.
