A few weeks back, Escape’s Relationship Manager, Anita Gribble, was invited to speak with students at the University of Western England in Bristol, and on Friday 12th April she made the trip westbound. Undergrads, MA. and graphic design students were invited to come and meet with her to learn more about Escape Studios and the VFX industry in the UK, via a presentation followed by some Q & A.
After the presentation Anita was taken on a tour of the facility by John Parry, the Programme Leader of the Animation Department. She was able to meet with students working on their final 2D, 3D and stop motion animation projects.
The students spent time showing their work, their ideas and designs, to Anita’s delight, their passion shone through. They are currently completing their end of course projects and we look forward to seeing the final results in the coming months.
As their course leader so eloquently put it: “It is hard to define us having a house style as such – but we have a house attitude” Some of the students expressed an interest in taking their creativity further in to the world of VFX. We certainly look forward to seeing where their journey will take them!
