Amanda, Elena, Joseph and Daniel took our 12 week animation short course at Escape Studios, while Stephen is one of our first students to graduate from our BA in 3D Animation.
All five now have an amazing opportunity to start their career in animation at one of London's leading VFX houses.
MPC is one of London's largest and most well respected VFX houses. The work done by the studio on Disney's The Lion King is second to none, and arguably raises the bar for creature animation to a new level of skill and believability.
To see our review of The Lion King, read this post, and to see more about how it was made, follow this link.
Daniel Amor graduated from our 12 week animation course last year and quickly found a paid training contract as an animator with Technicolor Academy in London, alongside fellow Escapees Chan Sagoo and Melissa Coarezza.
Joseph took our 12 week course in animation and also the Advanced Animation course, using the extra time to upgrade his skills and work on his demo reel.
Elena Scala also took our 12 week course in animation. Since then she has been working at Escape Studios as a Studio Assistant, helping to guide student animators while also working on polishing her own demo reel.
Working as a studio assistant is a great way to gain a deeper understanding of how the industry works, and also the chance to keep improving that crucial demo reel.
Amanda Costa has been also working at Escape Studios as a Studio Assistant, and has done great work polishing her own demo reel. A number of her shots have been included in our official demo reels - you can see our latest reel below.
Stephen Mealand completed our BA in 3D Animation and led the successful VFX project "Reece", which has made the official selection for a number of film festivals.
Congratulations to all our Escapees on finding work in their chosen field at one of the world's leading animation studios.
