Do you have raw talent and big aspirations? If you're willing to put in the time, passion and hard work necessary, we can promise you a highly vocational, industry-focused training experience, giving you the skills you need to graduate job-ready.

Why Escape Studios?

You'll study at the heart of London's creative scene in our state of the art industry-style facilities using professional tools and techniques so you'll get a taste of what it's like to work in the industry. Each studio is fitted out with HP Z640 workstations (which boast 32GB of RAM and Nvidia Quadro M4000 graphics cards!).

Our tutors are experts and have all worked in successful studios. Packed with everything from The Dark Knight to Harry Potter and multiple PlayStation titles, their CVs don't get much cooler!

Through our industry events you'll learn first-hand from some of the most creative and influential names in the industry, such as Stuart Penn (VFX Supervisor at Framestore) and Eamonn Butler (Head of Cinesite Animation Division at Cinesite).

Our short courses are strongly vocational, designed to give you professional studio experience and train you to the latest standards. You'll get a full package of career development support for 12 months after your short course ends.
