Sydney Padua Returns to Escape Studios

Sydney Padua
Escape Studios is delighted to welcome back industry veteran Sydney Padua, who is teaching our animation students animal and creature locomotion this week.

Sydney's stellar animation career includes classics like Brad Bird's The Iron Giant and - most recently - The Jungle Book, where she contributed to the hyper-realistic style of the hugely successful Disney remake.

Sydney has also published the graphic novel "The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage", a steampunk re-imagining of the lives of computer pioneers Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage. Sydney brings a storytelling angle to her classroom teaching, reminding us that animators aren't just technicians - they are storytellers too.

Meanwhile, keep an eye out for our next animation short course at the Escape Studios website - we'll be running a new intensive 12 week class in character and creature animation in November of this year.

The Escape Studios Animation Blog offers a personal view on the art of animation and visual effects. To find out more about our new BA/MArt, now recruiting for September 2017, follow this link.   To apply, visit the official page here.
