Felix Massie - alumni author - BA Animation 2007

Meet Felix Massie. Graduate of the BA Animation course (2007), Felix is a director, animator and children's book author who lives in London. He makes short films, children's books, commercials and works at Nexus Studios. 

George Pearce And His Huge Massive Ears - Felix Massie alum author


Felix's journey to being a children's author started after he'd made a short animated film called, In The Air Is Christopher Gray, which won an award at the London International Animation Festival. 

Jenny Broom, Associate Publisher from publishing house Frances Lincoln spotted the film and wanted to know if Felix had ever thought of doing children's books before... so started his journey to writing two books with her!

Felix's latest book 'George Pearce And His Huge Massive Ears' is a fantastic followup to his first title 'Terry Perkins and his Upside Down Frown'.

We asked Felix what led him to write the genre of books that he does: "I find morals really interesting and sometimes you can't beat a good metaphor. So children's books are probably the best category in that regard. I've always liked drawing and always enjoyed stories, so what better reason to become a children's author!"

So what about his latest title 'George Pearce And His Huge Massive Ears'?

'Meet George Pearce - he's easy to spot, because of his huge massive ears. Having big ears has its advantages - nothing escapes George, and soon he is awash with information that he has picked up on the sly. The problem is, when so many other people's opinions start to fill your ears it's hard to hear the little voice inside your own head. Soon George is so disorientated by conflicting advice that he's overwhelmed. Can he find a way to reassert his identity?'
