Nexus announced that Felix Massie will join its roster of directorial talent. This appointment demonstrates Nexus’ continued commitment to developing and supporting some of the most exciting talent in film and animation.
Massie graduated from the International Film school of Wales in 2007 after completing animation short Keith Reynolds Can’t Make It Tonight, which went on to be selected for the Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for best animation at the Royal Television Society Student Television award in 2008.
