Delgo the next Nemo?

02.26.2004

When one hears the phrase "independent production" in relation to film you hardly ever think of an animated feature. That's because it's never happened. Until now. Fathom Studios has taken a giant yet confident step into the hugely successful world of computer animated movies with DELGO, an epic story of fantasy and adventure that promises to be a ride not soon forgotten. Screenwriter, Jennifer A. Jones wrote to JoBlo.com with a a bunch of details, including word on the impressive cast. "The filmmakers wanted to get into show biz and figured why not just build a studio and make it happen for themselves. The all-star cast took a chance on us because they not only liked the film, they liked our rebel status." That cast includes Jennifer Love Hewitt, Val Kilmer, Chris Kattan, Michael Clarke Duncan, Burt Reymolds, Lou Gossett Jr., Malcolm McDowell, Anne Bancroft, and an unannounced leading male for the voice of DELGO. " In fact, because there have been so many guesses as to who he is circulating online, I'm planning a "Guess the Voice of Delgo" contest," adds Jennifer. The film's website is enjoyable and original in that the makers of the film post their "Digital Dailies" giving fans a exclusive glimpse at the progress of the artwork. You can also check out the trailer and tons of pictures by clicking on the image below.

My first impression of the film is all good. The animation seems more crisp than the likes of SHREK and the characters are far more original than those appearing in Pixar's TOY STORY or FINDING NEMO. If DELGO continues to be mentioned within that circle of films after it's finally released, expect a lot more from Fathom in the future.
