Here are a few quotes taken from the Sky Swipe footage:

Gemma Morris

This week we’re at Escape Studios, an academy training people in visual effects, like the ones we see in the movies and video games and our TV shows. Those designers, often amaze and entertain us.

Stuart Duggan

Mark Spevick teaches visual effects here, he's worked on big movies like Casino Royale. He says VFX work has important relationship with technology.

Mark Spevick

Our industry is absolutely tech driven that's what's caused the huge explosion in the last 15 years.

Stuart Duggan

Students like Penelope could go onto work in the movie industry on films you and I see in the cinema. One day, they could be getting paid to make Iron Man fight the Hulk in the Avengers... You may not have thought about the job being done by visual effects artists in the movies but that's kind of the point - if these people do their work well you won't even notice.
