Steve Edge Director at Karrot Animation

Steve Edge
Many congratulations to Escapee Steve Edge, who has just joined Karrot Animation as animation director.

Previously Steve was directing "Aliens Love Underpants" for Tiger Aspect Productions in London.

Steve studied animation at Escape Studios and used the training to launch his career as an animator and animation director.

Steve is also teaching our new course in 2D animation using Cel Action, starting in October this year

At Escape Studios, Steve was taught 3D by Dan Schutt, one of our longest-serving tutors, and he learned animation from Jeff Pratt, who first launched the animation department at Escape Studios after working at both NASA and Pixar Animation.

Steve's success in 2D animation shows how transferable the skills learned at Escape Studios can be. A skilled 3D animator can apply those skills to many areas of production - including 2D animation.

Steve isn't the only Escapee to go on to direct at Tiger Aspect. Rich Jeffrey, who took our animation short course a few years back, also followed the same path. 

To see more of Steve's work, watch his demo reel below:
