Govt Industrial Strategy Highlights Creative Industries - Good News for Our Students

Support for "Creative Industries"
Theresa May's Government recently released an Industrial Strategy that highlights a number of sectors that they believe will lead to new jobs and growth in the future.

Among these are listed the creative industries, suggesting that our Government will continue to offer support to the business of - among other things - animation, games and visual effects.

Of course, this is nothing new.  Under David Cameron's government, Chancellor George Osbourne negotiated a 20% producer tax credit for TV Animation, which has led to a huge increase in TV animation production in this country.

One of the most common questions we get asked by students looking to take our courses is "will I get a job?".  It's an impossible question to answer (at least in individual cases), but here at Escape Studios we can be more confident than ever that we are teaching students to right skills, and that the industry is expanding to accommodate fresh talent.

We are entering a golden age of creative work in this country, and our students are well placed to take advantage of it.

To see the full story, follow this link to the article in the Guardian.

The Escape Studios Animation Blog offers a personal view on the art of animation and visual effects. To find out more about our new BA/MArt - now recruiting for September 2017, follow this link.   To apply, visit the offical page here.
