We are CG
Escape is one of the most successful and well-respected CG academies in the world. We’re the proving ground for a new generation of computer graphics stars breaking into film, TV, games and commercials.
Escape is not a university. We don’t do theoretical exercises. We skip the history lessons. Our training is about results. A degree teaches you theories over a long time. An Escape course is different. We teach you one discipline in-depth over a short time. Our courses are intensive hands-on practical workshops designed with a single aim in mind – to give you the skills, experience and confidence (not to mention the showreel) to get you the job you want in computer graphics.
To succeed you’ll need talent. Personal and financial commitment. Imagination, hard work and belief. But if you’ve got what it takes, Escape Studios gives you the knowledge and tools to prove it. This is where it all begins.
Dominic Davenport graduated with a degree and MA in Fine Art from the Chelsea Art School – where he won the Henry Moore Prize – and pursued a career in VFX working for leading studios such as Glassworks, Double Negative and Me company.
It was through his own experience that Dominic realised how difficult it was for young artists to obtain the technical skills required to work in this industry. The professional-standard computer graphics training he was looking for just didn’t exist, so he decided to create it. He called his new project Escape Studios.
His vision for Escape Studios was to fill the gap between what universities were teaching students and what industry required from graduates. While our vision is now much broader, that simple core aim – to ready computer graphics artists for careers in industry remains. Dominic owns and directs the company to this day and his pioneering creative spirit continues to define everything we do.
Escape is now Europe’s premier CG trainer. Our philosophy is to represent, advocate and facilitate uncompromising excellence in all aspects of computer graphics.
