    by Helen Morgan

    Escape Studios 72 Hour Film Project

    Last month, we asked budding filmmakers to take part in Escape Studio’s first ever short film competition #Escape72Hours. In this race against the clock, our teams had to put their skills to the test to create the best VFX short film to fit the theme ‘Crossover’ in just 72 hours. Our stellar line-up of judges included VFX supervisor Steve Begg (Casino Royale, Skyfall) Andy McNamara from Deluxe’s Rushes (Spectre), and 3D Artist Editor Stephen Holmes.

    We would love to officially announce that the winner of the film project is Team Simon with their short film ‘The Last Shuttle’!
