Lonely Bones wins Best Original Music Award in Annecy

The music of Lonely Bones, the latest short film by Dutch filmmaker/artist Rosto, has been awarded at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival 2013. Rosto, who directed the film and also wrote the music, received the Sacem Award for Best Original Music. Lonely Bones was selected for the official competition at Annecy, the world’s leading animation festival.

Lonely Bones written and directed by Rosto and produced by Autour de Minuit Productions, Nicolas Schmerkin & Studio Rosto A.D, Rosto.

Lonely Bones is a surreal and sinister film featuring music and characters of music project Thee Wreckers. Lonely Bones takes off where No Place Like Home, a short released in 2008, ended. A one-eyed man makes his escape from a hotel room, entering a hellish world where time and space intertwine.

Rosto is extremely pleased with the Annecy Award for Best Original Music, especially since music has always been a driving force in his work. Last year, Rosto received a similar award at the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival for his film The Monster of Nix. ‘Although I link characters and stories in all my work, music is what really connects my projects,’ Rosto says. ‘Making films is a way to manifest the music by Thee Wreckers, a now virtual band with demonic members who don’t grow old and always show up. Lonely Bones is my Fantasia. While Disney’s films are based on classical music, I use rock and roll. Music is the DNA of these films.
