To be an artist in the industry, you need a showreel. Escape taught me the skills I needed to make that possible. I’m now a Matchmove Artist at Dneg which is an awesome place.

John Gresko, Escapee (Alumni)

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.
