Oliver Mason has been making short films for many years, having started out as a runner in BBC Drama. He went on to train in script development but has found his real passion lies in directing and editing. His short films Away with Me, about spontaneous holiday romance in Nice that turns sour when there is a clash of intentions and expectations between the two men, and Miss Moneypenny, a bright and spunky 4-minute comedy about gay dating, are available now on Dekkoo. He currently has a short film in the works that needs some crowdfunding assistance.
Have We Met Before? is a short docudrama exploring how the internet has changed how gay men meet and interact with each other. Combining real documentary interviews with a freshly created cinematic narrative, Mason is hoping to create something new and engaging which is simultaneously authentic and poetic.
