What course did you study?

Compositing for Visual Effects (12 weeks)

How did studying at Escape Studios help you into the world of VFX?

Our tutor taught us what we needed to know to hit the ground running. He gave us first hand industry advice. I also know that working with other students all wanting the same things helps keep the momentum going.

What are you working on at the moment?

Can’t really talk about that. But the last film I’m really proud of is "Kingsman: Secret Service”.

What's your favourite movie and why?

Too many to mention..., but I am partial to a total VFX orgy.

If you had to sum up your time at Escape Studios in one word what would it be and why?

Cool. 

What lessons have you learnt during your time studying and your time working in VFX?

Sharing knowledge in this industry is a key, and be a team player. Shabby work has a knock on effect.

What is your advice for those considering entering the industry?
