Here at Escape Studios we encourage all our students to pitch ideas for animation, for TV series, for movies - anything that gets you thinking about the creative side of animation. Becoming an animator is not just about learning your craft, it's about thinking, creating - coming up with ideas. Who knows? Your idea could be the next Peppa Pig, Bob The Builder, or Teletubbies.
