Massie’s talent for making wryly amusing and morbidly deadpan animated shorts featuring stick figures has turned him into something of a film-festival star. His graduation short, Keith Reynolds Can’t Make It Tonight, about an office worker having a bad day, was an international festival hit last year. His latest, The Surprise Demise Of Francis Cooper’s Mother, a technically and narratively more ambitious short about fate, is impressing audiences around the world, most recently at Annecy and Edinburgh. For now, Massie is happy to hone his storytelling skills in the short format. His next short, set in 1960s America, will be his first to include dialogue, and he is also developing a TV series for young adults with Arthur Cox animation studio.
