Escape Studios




•• Multiple Houdini Courses | • Single Houdini Course | ☼ Houdini available for Project/Studio Use

At Escape Studios, we offer undergraduate, postgraduate and short courses in Visual Effects (VFX), Game Art, Animation and Motion Graphics.

We work with an impressive list of industry partners to design and deliver our courses, from MPC, DNEG, Framestore and The Mill, through to Jellyfish Pictures, Milk and BlueBolt, to name just a few!

Following the industry that we serve, we use SideFX Houdini across many of our courses- both degree based and short courses. Do you have raw talent and big aspirations? If you're willing to put in the time, passion and hard work necessary, we can promise you a highly vocational, industry-focused training experience, giving you the skills you need to graduate job-ready.

We’re in the heart of London's creative scene in our state-of-the-art facilities using professional tools and techniques for a real-life studio experience. We’ve also been teaching Houdini to COVID-furloughed VFX artists recently with SideFX’s help to ensure the industry bounces back.

Our tutors are experts and have all worked in successful studios. Packed with everything from The Dark Knight to Harry Potter, Thor: Ragnarok and multiple PlayStation titles, their CVs don't get much cooler!

Through our industry partners, you'll get to meet, receive feedback and learn from some of the most creative and influential names in the industry as we invite guest speakers and tutors to the studios from the likes of Framestore, Creative Assembly or DNEG. 

Our Head of 3D VFX Mark Spevick works closely with SideFX and you may even see his tutorials and demos on SideFX’s website as well as Escape’s YouTube channel!
