Introducing "Joe"

Escape Studios proudly presents "Joe", a short film directed by third year student Callum Reeve and produced by Aidan Lonergan. This short film was completed as part of the third year animation Module PR6001,  a Studio Project worth 60 Credits.

In this module our animation and VFX students join forces to produce a visual effects (VFX) project, with three months to take the project from initial pitch to final render.

The lead animator was Jack Thompson, and cinematography was by Clement Gharini. The 3D VFX Lead was Alfie Mitchell, and the Compositing Lead was George Randall.

Joe is currently being entered into film festivals, and we wish the team every success.
