The Art of Character Design
Steve brings his skill as a professional character designer to Escape Studios, helping to steer our animation students towards practical outcomes. Character designers in the creative industries must work towards a client brief, developing an art bible that can be used by overseas studios and production houses.

A successful career in the animation industry requires the ability to balance creativity and creative thinking with working to a specific brief, with clear parameters.

CR5001 - Animation Specialism
Steve  Sole's class forms part of the 2nd year Animation Specialism module CR5001, where our students begin to focus on individual proficiency in the craft of animation.

The Specialism Module  involves a blend of taught classes and self-study in which students must select an area of specialism and develop their proficiency in that area. CR5001 is worth 15 credits and runs for five weeks, culminating in a portfolio presentation.
