ACCESS: VFX Animation Summer School

August 08
August 10
Escape Studios | Free | 10.00am - 5.00pm

Do you love animation? Are you a parent, teacher or carer of a keen animator and want to find out more about how they can channel their love for animation into an exciting career in the visual effects (VFX), animation and games industries?


According to a recent Screen Business report released last October, the UK’s visual effects and animation industry generates more than one billion pounds of added value for the UK economy. This shows VFX to be a vital component of the UK’s successful film, TV and advertising industries.


This Summer ACCESS: VFX will partner with London SIGGRAPH, 3Dami, Escape Studios and We Are Stripes to host our ‘Animation Summer School’ a 3-day family-event for 11-16-year olds interested in a career in the exciting UK animation industry.


We will host a range of free workshops across 3 days on:

Thursday 8th August    

Friday 9th August   

Saturday 10th August 


Please express your interest in attending by signing up for a free ticket on a date of your choosing. We will then get in touch separately to confirm your place at the event and keep you posted on our plans for the day.  We are currently working on building the content for the workshops across the 3 days, but can promise that the experience will provide a fresh perspective on attainable creative careers, a chance to connect with industry professionals first-hand and gain optional mentorship.


We hope that by spreading the word to fresh and inclusive communities of people, providing Inspiration, sparking Aspiration, will in time, lead to Application.
