Olivia Unwin
Many congratulations to Escapee Olivia Unwin who has recently started a new position as a Production Assistant at London VFX powerhouse Framestore.

Olivia took our BA in the Art of Video Games, and specialised in producing studio projects, where our students come together in groups to mimic as closely as possible the realities of working in industry.

Last of London
While at Escape Studios, Olivia produced award-winning student projects such as The Last of London.

Production Assistant at MPC
Prior to working at Framestore, Olivia worked as a production assistant at MPC, where she earned production credits on Lady and The Tramp, Ad Astra, and 1917 - which has been nominated for a clutch of Oscars.

You can find Olivia at IMDB here.

Escapees in Production Roles
Other Escapees who have gone to production roles include Maddison Gould, production assistant at Playstation,  and Katerina Zacharakis, also a production assistant at Playstation.  Animator Lydia Layton became a Production Co-ordinator at Two Sides TV, and animator Carine Ong also became a producer at Framestore.

Framestore are one of the UK's leading visual effects houses; with a remarkable track record of world-beating animation and VFX.  Many of our students have gone to to successful careers at Framestore, and members of the studio are regular visitors at Escape Studios, helping to mentor our students and pass on their expert knowledge.

Producing animation, games and VFX
Olivia's career move is a reminder to us all that there are many opportunities available in today's animation industry. Being able to produce excellent creative content opens a world of opportunities in the creative industries.

How to become a producer
How do students learn the art of producing?  The best way, of course, is to take on the role of producer on one of the many studio projects being done at Escape Studios. Producing is a lot more fun than it might sound, and showing that you can step up and take responsibility for a project to help bring it in on time and on budget is a major asset in our industry.
