Felix Massie’s ‘Rain of Shine’ launches on Steam and Viveport

// Hot off the Press


Felix Massie/Nexus Studios Rain or Shine, created for Google Spotlight Stories, has launched in updated form on Steam and Viveport.

The sun is shining, the birds are singing, there’s a spring in everybody’s step. It’s a perfect day until Ella steps outside.

According to Variety Magazine, Nexus Studios’ Rain or Shine is EMMY award-winning Google Spotlight Stories’ most interactive short to date and has today released in fully immersive, virtual reality.

New characters, new vignettes and in 6 degrees of freedom, the audience interaction is more fun and sophisticated than ever with the audience now able to subtly change the way the characters act just by looking at them (or not).

Rain or Shine director director Felix Massie‘s work frequently demonstrates a fantastic sense of comic timing and mastery in moving audiences with his often-simple style.

Having built up an impressive body of commercial work and short films including Keith Reynolds Can’t Make It Tonight (2007), The Surprise Demise of Francis Cooper’s Mother (2008) and In The Air Is Christopher Gray (2013) Felix recently introduced Mr Benn to a 21st century audience in two beautifully handcrafted spots directed for The Insurance Emporium.
