I’m excited to announce that I’ve got several voices in the new animated film Melita: The Last Guardian, produced by my paesano Paolo Bertola and distributed by The Film Export Group. This new feature was shown at the 2009 Cannes and Berlin Film Festivals and should start hitting shelves in the near future.

This 3D fantasy-adventure film features a war between humans and ogres, and other non-human creatures. In fact, even aliens get involved in the act, especially with regard to a mysterious substance that fell from the sky called “Melita.”

The main characters that I voiced include:

Old Meldon, a 500-year-old man (kind of wizard-like) who remembers when Melita first came to the world.
Beast, a comical lizard sidekick to his Ogre friend who fawns upon a beautiful human woman.
Saur, the ambitious Prince of the Eastern Lands

In addition, I filled in on a few characters that required an odd line or two. The images shown in my blog are screen caps from the video for all but Saur, who is taken from the concept art. As that character doesn’t appear in the trailer, I’m not sure if he still looks the same as there have been definite changes in Meldon and Beast in the final product.

We voiced this about a year ago and were very excited at the time with the concept art and by an early segment that they had released from the film. I’ve only seen this trailer, which has gotten me excited to see the full film.
