Minuet in Golden Nugget Film Festival 11 Sept

Congratulations to our student animators - the short films Minuet and The Golden Acorn are both finalists in the Golden Nugget Film Festival in London on Wednesday September 11th.

We'll be going along to cheer our students on, vote in the audience award, and offer applause and support.  

At just under 6 minutes, Minuet is our most ambitious film to date at Escape Studios, completed by recent animation graduates. Golden Acorn was completed by a group of talented second year students who will soon start their third year of studies at Escape Studios.

Good luck to all our student film-makers as they showcase their talent and skill on the wider stage

Studio Project
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.

The Golden Acorn
"The Golden Acorn" is a trailer completed by 2nd year undergraduate Escape Studios Animation students, as part of their Studio Project module, which comes half way through the second year

The Golden Acorn
Our second year students learned to work together in teams (not always an easy task, but essential for a career in industry), pitching projects to one another, selecting the best idea, and working towards a defined project brief. The project was directed Maciej Osuch and edited by Miguel Teixera. To see the Golden Acorn at the IMDB, follow this link.
