Escape for the summer

Escape Studios and Trafford College have teamed up to offer two summer schools to budding game artists and animators. These workshops are open to current BTEC and A-level students, and those progressing to university this year.

For just £50 you’ll take part in a packed two day workshop at Trafford College. You’ll be taught by professionals who have worked in the industry and you’ll get hands-on tutorials to create a mini masterpiece that can form part of your creative portfolio. Plus we’ll give you tons of careers advice, tips and industry insights to kick-start your career.

Escape Studios is a leading creative academy based in London and they’ve helped over 2000 alumni break into the industry. Their students have worked on BAFTA and Oscar winning films like Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, The Jungle Book, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Gravity. They’ve also worked on bestselling games (Assassin’s Creed and Forza Horizon), award-winning adverts and some have even set-up their own studios. Escape Studios really know their stuff and this is your chance to get trained by the experts.


Games workshop

When: Thursday 5 July 2018 and Friday 6 July 2018
Where: Trafford College, Manchester Rd, Timperley, Altrincham, WA14 5PQ
Time: 9:30am - 5:00pm

This workshop lets you get an introduction to the art of 3D for games as well as explore what it’s like to work as a professional games artist.

Working with tools such as Autodesk Maya, Adobe Photoshop and Unreal Engine you will get a hands-on introduction to 3D game art techniques such as:

  • Creating and editing 3D models

  • UV’s

  • Texturing maps

  • Lighting

  • Physics

  • Destruction

  • and of course testing by playing.

The project you’ll be working on starts directly in the game engine where you learn how to manipulate objects and materials, how to interact and destruct objects. You will then export the game model in Maya and edit in 3D, change the textures in Photoshop and bring it back into the games engine to test and refine.
