Must Watch: ‘Keith Reynolds Can’t Make It Tonight’, the Universal Animation
Keith Reynolds Can’t Make It Tonight is a story I am sure many will wish they had written (I know I did) because it is so simple, yet so efficient and original.
Written, Directed and Animated by Felix Massie, a British director and animator who did Keith… in 2007 when he was a student at the University of Wales, the six minute short won many awards and did its round of festivals before being uploaded on vimeo 11 months ago.
I discovered the video thanks to short of the weeks and was impressed by the quality of the story and how it blends perfectly with the narrative technique Massie used, using an imaginary lateral cut in a building -like an open doll house- to show the different floors of a building and follow the different protagonists.
Watch it for yourself, enjoy:
