Doing a VFX course can lead your career in many directions. For many of our students it has been the launching pad for a career in post-production, for film, TV and commercials. Many students have also gone on to work in other areas such as games and architectural visualisation. We teach the fundamentals and practicalities of working in CG, paving the way for what you will eventually specialise in.
We recently caught up with Alenka Abraham, an escapee who completed a VFX course back in 2003. Alenka has taken a significantly more unique path since her time at Escape, and is now the co-founder of Existential Ltd. Set-up in 2009 alongside Adam Cubitt, Existential develops software solutions for high-end computer graphics and real-time systems. The company has been working on an impressive range of projects, namely a project with Martha Fiennes. This was the pioneering digital artwork SLOimage Nativity, in collaboration with MPC. Alenka will be joining us for a webinar on July 12th to talk about this in more detail.
As well as hearing Alenka’s impressive story on July 12th, you will also have an opportunity to hear from Andy Brassington, Training Manager here at Escape Studios. Andy will discuss online mentored courses briefly, as a solution for those who can’t afford to quit the day job. It’s an opportunity to study one of our courses from anywhere in the world while having the same benefits as someone attending a course in our classrooms. With a mentored study program and access to tutors with an ocean of industry experience, it’s a great option to further develop your CG skills.
More than ever we’re working hard to bring our students the very best in VFX and Compositing training.
