Daniel Dutton Studio Assistant at Escape

Daniel Dutton
Many congratulations to our fourth year animation student Daniel Dutton who was recently made a studio assistant at Escape Studios, while studying for his MA in his fourth year.

Daniel has worked a number of award-winning short films during his time at Escape Studios; he was the editor on Jericho, a short film completed by our third year undergraduate students, in which a lonely robot searches for pieces to build a mechanical friend.

Daniel also animated on Minuet, a short film about a young concert pianist who, while preparing for her big performance, finds help in an unlikely place. Daniel was Technical Director (TD) on the project, managing the Unreal Engine pipeline.
