IT'S FOR THE GAME CHANGERS,
NOT THE SPECTATORS

At Escape Studios, we offer undergraduate, postgraduate and short courses in Visual Effects (VFX), Game Art, Animation and Motion Graphics.

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. Here's how we do it:

  • Our tutors have worked in the industry and have been hand-picked from successful studios; they teach real-world tips and tricks learnt from on-the-job experience
  • You'll work in an industry-style studio from day one, so you'll get a taste of what it's like to work in industry
  • Our industry partners include Framestore, The Mill, MPC, Double Negative, Cinesite, Electric Theatre and JellyFish Pictures (to name just a few!); our partners help to design, develop and deliver our courses and they influence everything we do, so you'll benefit from up-tp-the-minute knowledge and experience
  • You'll study at the heart of London's creative scene, so our state of the art facilities are the perfect place to kick-start your career 
  • You'll follow in the footsteps of success; our 4000+ alumni (dubbed 'Escapees') have worked on everything from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, to Ex Machina, Spectre and more!
