Introducing "The Golden Acorn"



We're proud to present the "The Golden Acorn", a trailer completed by 2nd year undergraduate Escape Studios Animation students, as part of their Studio Project module, PR5001. The Studio Project Module comes half way through the second year and is the point at which studying at Escape Studios becomes much more creative; students learn to work together in teams, pitching projects to one another, selecting the best idea, and working towards a defined project brief. Congratulations to Maciej Osuch,  Miguel Teixera, Titi-Marian Giusca, Petroc Menuhin, Cuchulan O'Byrne and Sasha Batt on their excellent work.

The Golden Acorn
PR5001 Studio Project
The 2nd year of animation studies at Escape Studios culminates in the Studio Project, a 12 week module worth 45 credits in which students collaborate to work together to a brief, designed as closely as possible to simulate working on a live client project.

Escape Method
The Studio Project runs for 12 weeks, with a week off for Easter, and forms part of what we call the Escape Method, our unique blend of intensive personal tuition combined with group project work that simulates working in a real studio environment.

Two films in the 2nd year
The Studio Project is broken up into two projects, giving our students the chance to practice their film-making skills twice in a short space of time. This allows our animators to learn from their mistakes and develop a much more efficient and refined work flow.  The teaser/trailer is our students' first project, and has been entered into this year's "The Rookies" competition here.
