Our alumni (dubbed Escapees) form a vibrant, well-connected global community working throughout the animation, video games and VFX industries.

Bonded by their passion and their Escape Studios experience, they are highly-respected creative professionals who continue to socialise, network and collaborate as their individual careers grow.

You’ll find Escapees at many of the world’s top VFX and games studios, behind Oscar and BAFTA-nominated films, including Dune, No Time To Die and The Lion King, and hundreds of award-winning films, commercials and video games.

The course at Escape Studios gave me the core skills needed to become a Compositor and an in-depth knowledge of the whole VFX pipeline. Being able to participate in group projects helped me to develop technical, artistic and soft skills at the same time.
