2019 VFX Festival - Who's Coming?

The Escape Studios' 2019 VFX Festival kicks off on February 6th.  As in previous years, we've got some excellent speakers coming to talk about the latest developments in Animation, Games and VFX.

This year we're welcoming UK animation powerhouses such as Framestore, MPC Film, Jellyfish Pictures, Blue Zoo, AXIS animation The Third Floor and Creative Assembly to talk about their latest work.

Who's coming?
  • Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald presented by Framestore
  • Warhammer II presented by Creative Assembly
  • Game of Thrones presented by The Third Floor
  • The Innocents presented by Jellyfish Pictures
We are also welcoming MPC, AXIS Studios and Blue Zoo animation.

Emerging Talent
This year the VFX Festival kicks off with our "Emerging Talent" event which runs for two days, from February 6-7th at London's South Bank Centre.

Why come to the VFX Festival?
Because there is no better way to find out about the latest trends in our industry, who is hiring, and what skills are in demand.
We strongly encourage all our current, past and future students to attend. Come and find out what the future holds for our industry.

Where and When?
The "Emerging Talent" part of the 2019 VFX Festival will run at London's South Bank from Wednesday 6th to Thursday 7th February 2019.  Address: Purcell Room, Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London, SE1 8XX

What's on display?
Like last year, our 2019 schedule is packed with a series of industry talks and showcases from across the VFX, Animation, Games and Motion Graphics sectors.  VFX is a constantly changing landscape. Last year's "big thing" is this year's old news. So come along, and find out about the latest trends in our industry.

Recruiters
South Bank Centre
For many Escapees and recent graduates, the most important part of the Festival is probably the recruiters, who come from all the big animation and VFX houses hunting for talent.

If you'd like to meet in person the people who could help you get a job (and why wouldn't you?) - this is the place to be.

Where can you book tickets?
2019 Tickets are on sale for "Emerging Talent" on 6-7 February at the EventBrite page here.
