Delgo-ing where no one has gone before. Fathom Studios makes a bid to change the very process of filmmaking. Georgia is a long way from Hollywood, but Atlanta-based Fathom STudios doesn’t care – they plan on revolutionizing the film industry anyway. Chris Wyatt – Cinescape
The story tells of the land of Jhamora that is torn apart by the mutual prejudice of two races: the winged Nohrin, masters of the skies, and the terrestrial Lockni, who harness the mystical powers of the land. When Delgo, a reckless Lockni teenager, forms a forbidden friendship with the spunky Nohrin Princess Kyla, hostilities between the two peoples escalate, setting the stage for an exiled Empress to exact her revenge and reclaim her rule. Falsely imprisoned, Delgo and his faint-hearted best friend, Filo, must put aside their differences to join forces with a sworn enemy and travel to the mysterious land of Perran, where they discover more than just a scorned Empress and her two bumbling servants. Delgo is dedicated to the memory of Anne Bancroft, the voice of villain Sedessa, who died in 2005 before production on the film was completed.
“It’s clear that Delgo has the potential to be a truly groundbreaking movie, proving that independent studios can hold their own. Atlanta’s Fathom Studios is taking on the big boys, producing a CG movie that’ll go up against the best the likes of Pixar and Square can offer. – Stuart Dredge, 3D World
