Introducing Minuet

Minuet - Final year animated short film - Escape Studios from Aaron Hopwood on Vimeo.

We're delighted to present Minuet - the latest film from our third year animation students. Minuet is a short film about a young concert pianist who, while preparing for her next performance, encounters misfortune - and finds help in an unlikely place.  Minuet was written by Harry Pearson, directed by Aaron Hopwood and Harry Pearson, produced by Maddison Gould, and overseen by 3rd year animation tutor Michael Davies.

With a running time of 5 minutes and 46 seconds, Minuet is our most ambitious short film to date. Overseen by third year animation tutor Michael Davies, and directed by Aaron Hopwood and Harry Pearson, the project was animated in Maya, and rendered in Unreal Engine.

Minuet was developed from a pitch by Harry Pearson, and was completed as part of our third year undergraduate animation students' final year Studio Project, in which students collaborate to work together as a team.

Our team projects at Escape Studios simulate the kind of work environment students will encounter in a commercial studio, dividing tasks, meeting deadlines, and dealing with feedback and notes.
