Escape Industry Speaker: Thomas Knight @ The Mill London - June 26th
For this open day we’ve invited Talent Assistant at The Mill, Thomas Knight, to share some industry secrets with you. Working closely with the Talent Manager in the Recruitment Department, Thomas has seen his fair share of VFX showreels (good and bad) and has become a bit of an aficionado when it comes to scouting out the kind of talent that The Mill want to work with.
During his talk, Thomas will be sharing some pearls of wisdom when approaching your own showreel, showing you some example showreels that have made waves amongst him and his team. And as an extra little treat, Thomas will be showing off some of his favourite projects from The Mill’s back catalogue of films and commercials… a bit of VFX eye candy that won’t disappoint.
Following Tom’s talk on industry recruitment, Escape’s very own Training Manager, Andy Brassington, will run you through the vital role the UK plays in the global VFX Industry and how Escape Studios fits into this ‘ecosystem’. The presentations will be capped off with a tour of our state of the art facilities.
