Want to get a taste of what life on our Animation course could be like? Think you have what it takes to join our successful Escapees but don’t know where to start? Then an Animation Taster Day is the one for you.

With an insight into the software, subject topics and facilities of the full Animation course, this one-day event will ensure that you apply for the right course for you.

As part of the experience, you will be introduced to the full course content and tutors, at our state-of-the-art classroom studios in London, along with a full-day’s training on the software used by students and industry alike.

Working with tools such as Autodesk Maya and Adobe Photoshop, you’ll also get a hands-on introduction to 3D Animation techniques such as:

  • Creating simple geometry
  • Basic texturing
  • Animation with Dynamics
  • Keyframe animation
  • Lighting
  • Rendering

Our one-day Animation Taster is a great way to experience life as an Escape Studios student first-hand and by the end of the day you will have your very own piece of animation uploaded to YouTube!

Why Escape Studios?

Escape Studios is Europe’s leading VFX and Games academy and we’ve been part of Pearson College London since 2013. Though we originally sprang into life in 2002, to solve the industry’s lack of studio-ready VFX talent. Since then, over 4,000 people have graduated from Escape, going on to forge successful careers spanning the whole VFX, games and animation spectrum.

Our secret? Our intensive and fiercely vocational approach and a professional studio experience that trains professionals to the latest industry standards.
