What is a Taster Day?

Taster Day

Our taster days are very similar to our open days but they focus on a specific subject, rather than giving you an overview of life at Escape Studios.

What can you expect from a Taster Day?

When you first arrive you will be attend a welcome talk that will help you find out more about Escape Studios and the creative industries, then you take your place in an environment that mirrors a standard industry VFX studio. Then once you're in the studios, depending on which course you choose you will use a range of software including Autodesk Maya, Unreal Engine 4 and Adobe Photoshop, you’ll also get a hands-on introduction to techniques.

How long do taster days last?

All day. You’ll be in the studio from 9.30am to 5pm, with lunch included. 

What are the benefits of attending a taster day?

If you’re unsure about which course to take this is your time to ‘try before you buy’. You’ll get to test out the software and take home a piece of work you create.
