Escape’s recruitment team has been extremely busy lately. As I come to the end of yet another busy month one thing is becoming increasingly clear - there is a genuine shortage of VFX freelancers within the Post Production Industry.
London's reputation continues to grow as ‘the’ place for top film studios to go to for Post Production and all our big post houses are busy with big, long-term projects. This has created a vacuum of talent, with the smaller, more commercial focused post houses struggling to find the artists that they need. The demand for experienced artists is outstripping the supply, with many professionals already being tied up on long term projects.
This means that I am dealing with twice the number of enquiries as in the same period last year. In fact I have never been this busy!
To cope with this increased demand I am on a bit of a recruitment drive and looking to increase the number of freelancers on our books. I am looking for artists across all disciplines: compositors, Maya generalists, match-movers, TDs, motion graphic artists and many more. So if you are an experienced freelancer, I would love to hear from you!
Escape Studios works with some of the biggest names in the business, so if you’re looking for your next project, register your show reel with me – your next job might just be here waiting for you.
