Announcing...the CG Whiz shortlist!

It's the moment you've all been waiting for... Escape Studios and The Mill are delighted to announce the shortlist of our CG Whiz competition. We’re astounded by both the level of interest and the standard of entries: we’ve had 136 entries, whilst the videos have received over 8,300 views! The shortlist (in no particular order) is:

The shortlisted entries beat stiff competition and will now go forward for a chance to win the top prize of a course at Escape Studios followed by work placement with The Mill. Two runners-up will win online courses, and ten other runners-up will receive subscriptions to leading industry magazines Shots and 3D Artist. The winners and runners-up will be announced on the 8th December at a prize giving event at Escape Studios. Stephen Venning, 3D Executive Producer at The Mill, said: "We were very impressed by the sheer creativity and diversity of the entries we received from applicants around the world. It's been extremely hard to pick the top entries so those we've shortlisted should be very proud of what they've achieved." The following have been specially commended by the judges:

All those listed in the " Specially Commended" list are invited to contact Escape Studios in the coming days. Your entries have attracted our attention and we would like to hear more about you.

  • Liam:

    Would you ever do one for Compositors?

  • Isabelle Duarte:

    Hi Robo,

    Hello Robo,

    Glad you enjoyed the clips. We have been having a lot of fun here going through them - we have been really impressed by the overall quality of the entries. As for your comment regarding the music, I guess we all have different tastes. I have to say though, that they wouldn't have the same impact without any kind of music.

    Keep your comments coming though. I always enjoy reading them and responding.


  • Robo:

    The clips are great but the music sucks. Graphic artists don't make good musicians. These clips sound like MTV wannabes.

  • Marco Baratto:

  • eggbox:

    Interesting choices some good some I don't get... seems like a lot of emphasis on graphic design rather than vfx work. Nice to see some modelling reels in there.

    P.S. You do know you've got pubudu086 in both lists?
