Our Industry partners

Escape was the spark that started the fire, with an amazing selection of tutors, extremely talented and with a huge experience, I was able to absorb a vast knowledge about the visual effects pipeline and that was extremely helpful when I started my first job at Electric Theatre Collective, also arranged through Escape.
