Escape Studios Movie Night!

Film Night is one of the many ways we work to give our students a great experience here at Escape Studios. We serve drinks and popcorn, and we sometimes show films that our tutors have worked on, so they can introduce the film and talk about what it was like working on the movie. 

For example, we'll be screening The Iron Giant on 11 December, and I'll be introducing the film, showing some of my shots, and talking about what it was like to work for one of the great animation directors - Brad Bird.

A digitally remastered version of the Iron Giant has recently been re-released in theatres in the US - a fitting tribute to a film which underperformed at the Box Office but has since become a cult classic.

Preparing our students for the world of working in the visual effects and animation industries is something we take very seriously.  But it doesn't have to be all work and no play.  Sometimes it can be work and play, both at the same time.


PS, the superb film poster above was created by Vicky, who is a very a talented Escapee and also now one of our studio assistants.  I particularly like the Wacom pen "light saber" she has worked into the centre of the image.
