Anyone who knows Escape Studios will know how valued our Studio Assistants are. Representing the heart of Escape, they keep this VFX academy a well-oiled machine. From supporting current students with their projects, making sure deliveries go out on time, to editing showreel videos, no job is too big or too small. And in return they are in the best place to ready their showreels for that next step in to the CG industry.
Simon Richardson was one such Studio Assistants. Always on hand to help out in our compositing classes and share his knowledge, Simon has a true passion for compositing. And this passion was infectious. On completing our Compositing for Production course in 2011, Simon joined the Escape team, becoming our very own in-house '2D genius', contributing greatly to the blog, free tutorials and the classroom.
