Celebrating our 20th Anniversary

Escape Studios (2002-2022)

We’re delighted to be celebrating our 20th anniversary this year.

Escape Studios has been at the forefront of creative education since we were founded in 2002, helping to bring studio-ready talent into the industry – we were established as an independent visual effects academy, offering short courses in Visual Effects, Game Art, Animation and Motion Graphics, and later joining Pearson College London to offer full degree programmes.

We’ve been on an incredible journey over the past 20 years, having seen thousands of students pass through our doors and develop partnerships with some of the world’s leading creative organisations.

Many of our students are honoured at international film festivals for their work, while we’ve helped our alumni (or ‘Escapees’) to progress to successful careers and work on award-winning projects across the world. These include BAFTA and Oscar-nominated films, including Dune, No Time to Die, 1917, Interstellar, Star Wars, Ex Machina, and bestselling games Assassin’s Creed, Uncharted 2 and Forza Horizon.

While we’re excited for the future at Escape Studios, we have plenty of plans for our 20th anniversary, so bookmark this page as we share our celebrations through the year.
