Miguel Teixera and Maciej Osuch
Miguel and Maciej are second-year undergraduate students at Escape Studios, studying the art of computer animation. They won the internship in part on the strength of the excellent teaser/trailer they completed as part of their second year studio project, in which groups of students collaborate to produce an industry-quality teaser or trailer for an upcoming film, game or TV Series.
"The Golden Acorn", was 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.
Finally, many thanks to Martina Sargiacomo from Student Experience and Andrew Brassington from Special Projects for their help in making this internship opportunity happen, and for helping to make sure our students have the best possible preparation for their careers in industry.
