Pixar's Royce Wesley to Visit Escape

Royce Wesley
We're excited to welcome Pixar animator Royce Wesley to London in June, when he will be mentoring our student animators.

Royce is an experienced character animator whose credits include Brave, Coco, Robots and Inside Out.  Royce will be visiting us in London right after finishing up on "Incredibles 2" to mentor our animators and help us to strive for Pixar quality animation.

Like Aaron Hartline, who visited us earlier this year, Royce brings industry talent to our classroom, to make sure our teaching techniques are as cutting-edge as possible.

Incredibles 2 - coming soon
Royce will be with us in late June, and will spend some face time with our student animators. Later on in the course he will keep in touch with us through our 3D animation Facebook Group, giving our students notes and comments on an ongoing basis.

Facebook is a surprisingly useful and versatile tool for this, enabling us to build an animation classroom and simulate as closely as possible a real studio, using "animation dailies" to hone the students' work and polish their skills.

The Escape Studios Animation Blog offers a personal view on the art of animation and visual effects. To apply for our new BA/MArt starting in September 2018, follow this link. We train all our students with practical real-world skills, to give them the best possible chance of a career in industry. To see some of our animation success stories, follow this link.
