Congratulations to all the finalists of our CG Whiz competition. We had a great time at the Reveal Event last night, meeting the future stars of the CG industry. As we’ve said before, we were overwhelmed by the sheer number and quality of the entries we’ve received.
Here at Escape Studios, we pride ourselves on our close links with the industry. One of the ways we maintain these links is by having tutors who have done the jobs they teach. This means that our tutors are some of the best CGers in the business, and they’re an incredibly creative bunch.
Not sure how many of you have been following this story, but a whopping 20 feature films have been submitted for the Animated Feature film category for the upcoming Oscars. This is great news for the industry as it means we’re well on track to getting five nominees qualifying for the category at the awards next February (we normally only have 3!).
Thanks to everyone who attended my "Becoming a World-Class Animator" webinar last night - it was great to get a chance to speak to all of you! We're going to make the presentation available in the Escape Studios Free Resources section of our website soon - so make sure that you keep an eye out for it.
Very recently there has been a release of two games engines that you can use at home.
Our CG Whiz competition has got off to a fantastic start - we’ve already had an impressive 27 entries but there’s still time to submit your best work.
We’ve got a new set of evening classes at Escape Studios , starting at the end of September. The Compositing Evening Course will allow experienced freelancers and amateur beginners alike to learn all they need to know about compositing in Nuke in twice weekly sessions, helping develop the skills required to becoming a top notch VFX compositor.
I have just finished teaching the summer games course, an intense 3 days that serves as an introduction to games art production and the many tools that games artists use.
