Freshly updated showreel and soft skills guide

Stand out from the crowd and leave a lasting impression

A showreel is your chance to stand out and show creative studios what you are made of. We’ve spoken to some of our successful Escapees (alumni) and asked for their top tips on how to create a quality showreel to land your first job and how Escape Studios helped them do just that!

The guide is also packed with first-hand advice from recruiters from Creative Assembly, Framestore and artists from Blue Zoo, DNEG and Bithell Games including what they look for in a showreel and the best way to grab their attention.

You can also find our brand-new showreel checklist at the back of the guide to help you build your own showreel.
