Come and learn about character and creature animation at Escape Studios on Tuesday May 31st - we still have a few places available.

We're running this animation taster day to give prospective students an idea of what it's like to study animation at Escape Studios. Your career as a 3D animator begins here!

You will work with industry-standard tools: Autodesk Maya and the Adobe Creative Suite, and you’ll get a hands-on introduction to 3D Animation techniques, all for just £25. By the end of the day you'll have your own piece of animation uploaded to your YouTube channel.  So, how do you sign up?

What's this all about?
This one-day taster course lets you get an introduction to the art of 3D Animation as well as explore what it’s like to work as a professional animator. We'll take you through the animation process from start to finish, ending up with a finished movie file.
