MA Animation Starts 8 October 2018

Our newest course - MA in 3D Animation
We're excited to add a new course to the Escape Studios portfolio: our new MA (Master of Arts) in 3D Animation, a post-graduate degree, validated by the University of Kent, and taught at our mid-town campus in central London.

The MA is now passing through the various approval processes, having been subjected to both internal and external scrutiny, and - subject to final approval from Kent - we should soon be ready to welcome our first cohort in October 2018.

What's this all about?
It's our first post-graduate degree in animation. This new full-time Master's degree starts in October and runs for a full year.

Where and when?
Campus: 190 High Holborn, London
Start date: 8th October

How much will it cost?
Fees: £17,500

Who is this course for?
This course is aimed at anyone who wants to learn the art and craft of 3D Animation in Maya, and also receive a formal qualification in the field. You might be a 2D animator wanting to break into 3D, or a graduate who didn’t get the right skills at university – or someone with no experience of animation who wants to make a career change. Remember that an MA is more or less essential for any practitioner who wants to teach their subject at university level. We teach all our students from scratch, and our goal is to make you job-ready by the end of the course.

Entry Requirements
We look for an undergraduate honours degree, ideally (but not necessarily) with a significant component in the field of animation or a related discipline.

What's this course all about?
We take you through all the essential principles of animation from the very beginning – bouncing a ball – through to sophisticated character and creature animation. We start with the basics of motion and locomotion, building up to pantomime, character performance, and also tackling animals and creatures.

Alex Williams
London has a strong focus on visual effects work and we want our students to be able to tackle the challenges and opportunities in our local market. By the end of the course you should have a polished video portfolio in the shape of an online demo reel to help you find work in this growing but competitive industry.

Course Design
The animation program has been refined over many years, constantly being adapted to suit the needs of industry, and following extensive industry consultation.

Who teaches the course?
The course will be taught by me and by a number of other animation tutors.  Likely tutors include Quentin Miles, former Head of Animation at Cinesite, Sydney Padua, veteran of dozens of animated and VFX hits, and Lee Caller, an excellent animator with a superb sense of comic timing and storytelling.  Every animator has their own unique workflow and areas of specialism, so having a variety of tutors helps our students get a broad range of approaches to animation.

Career opportunities
Our students go on to work in many areas of the industry including 3D animation for films, TV, games, and visual effects. We make sure our students get the time and practice that they need to refine their work to make them job-ready.
