Escapee Ricardo Viana Gives us the Low Down on our Online Mentored Course

Want to know what it’s like to do one of our Mentored courses? Well we caught up with Escapee Ricardo Viana to find out how he got on – all the way from sunny Portugal.

“With a full time job and family, I wasn’t sure I’d be able to have a career in VFX. Finding the time to do training was really tough so I needed something that would fit around my work and family time. I spent a long time checking out different courses online – I knew lots about different bits of visual effects but wanted to learn more – build up my understanding in one area that I could use to get a job.

Like anyone who wants to learn online, you don’t want to miss out on getting taught by experts or feedback from others doing the course. Doing Escape’s mentored course meant I could learn at my own pace, but I didn’t miss out on the mentoring part. That was really important to me.

My tutors (Dan Shutt and Lee Danskin) gave me great advice and I got to fire questions at other people doing the course – all this helped massively.”
