Thanks

Cool I have heard that they are really good. Do you think that it is value for money. It looks like it's £8500 for 12 full time course.
Have you done the course.

Do you want a course or a degree? For £8500 you could (almost) have a degree :) My university teaches Maya (and 3DSMax), I'm sure there are plenty of others in and around the London area that do so too.

Never went there. Worked with people that did, that they are tip top. Had a mate walk straight out of escape into a job at MPC, never worked in VFX before that.

But as I said, that's just wait i heard, ive not experience working with them.

Well from my dabblings with 3D I don't think the qualification is nearly as important as what's on your reel and any experience that you have.

If I had the time and the money I would definitely take the Escape course since you will be taught by industry professionals like I was at Animation Mentor and have a good head start. I think Escape help place you as well when it comes to job hunting.

I am affriad I couldn't answer the question about schools in Germany, I am sure there are other here who can. But as for:

That's a tough one, but I would generally say Max is probably more used in games with Maya being a very close second…
