Escape Studios Visits Jellyfish Animation!

Jellyfish Pictures in Brixton
Escape Studios' animation studios were treated to a studio tour of Jellyfish Pictures this past week, getting a unique behind-the-scenes peek into the workings of a major London animation studio.

Jellyfish are a relatively new kid on the London block, but they have grown from modest beginnings to become a major player in visual effects animation and also TV series work - which is currently booming in our home town.

Visiting studios is a great way to find out more about who is hiring, and what kind of skills they are looking for.  One useful piece of intelligence we learned on thursday is that Jellyfish require potential animators to do an animation test in 24 hours - so having a great demo reel is only part of the challenge of landing that crucial first job.

Jellyfish do both visual effects and cartoony animation - so they are looking for animators who do tight, disciplined creature work, and also broad, cartoony animation. To see some of their VFX work, watch the demo reel below:
