Massey, a 2-time Emmy nominee whose credits include the HBO vampire drama True Blood, has joined FuseFX. In his first project with the studio, Massey is
serving as VFX Supervisor for Turn, the
Revolutionary War series now in its second season on AMC.  With more than 10
years of experience as a visual effects supervisor and producer, Massey brings expertise

Massey arrives from Zoic Studios where he served as a visual
effects supervisor for nearly a decade. His work there included seven seasons
of True Blood, as well as the series Angel and Over There. He earned Emmy Award nominations for his work on the
pilots for Hemlock Grove and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Massey
got his start as a camera assistant and made the transition to visual effects
at 525 Post Production, Hollywood.
In discussing his move to FuseFX, Massey said that he was
impressed with the studio’s growth and focus on television. “Fuse has attracted
the best visual effects talent in the television industry,” he explained. “By
concentrating on episodic television, they have got it down to a science and
are able to service high-end shows with maximum efficiency. For me, it’s a
perfect fit.”
Massey added that coming off True Blood, he was looking for a new challenge and is excited to be
overseeing the team creating effects for Turn.
“It’s fascinating to work with historical reality,” he says. “A part of our job
is to do research to ensure that the architecture in our matte paintings is
correct, that the CG ships have period accurate flags, etc. A lot of work on
the production side goes into getting those details right and it’s important
that we follow that same level of commitment.  It’s like going back to school, challenging
but fun.”
