Escape Studios’ Dan Shutt Helps to Create “Sci-Fi Experience” at the Science Museum

Escape Studios’ VFX tutor and immersive animation expert Dan Shutt has helped to create a new exhibition at the museum titled  Science Fiction at the Science Museum.

In this “immersive genre-defying exhibition” guests embark on a “once in a lifetime adventure through the cosmos to explore visions of the future through the science of today”.  The cosmos in question were created and animated by Dan Shutt – our in-house expert in the field of live animation and immersive motion graphics. The project was led by agency Creative Giants, working alongside VFX house Framestore.

Guided by an artificial intelligence of alien origin, guests are placed at the heart of an exciting science fiction adventure.

Climb on board and explore a unique spaceship, scout an unknown planet, and investigate how scientists and science fiction creators have imagined and built new worlds to better understand our own.
