New Books for the VFX and Animation Library

We’ve acquired some new books for the Escape Studios VFX and Animation library, where we keep traditional hard copies (ie actual physical books) on the Third Floor at 190 High Holborn, WC1. 

The new books are “Pixar Storytelling” and “Pixar and the Aesthetic Imagination”, new titles which will help our 2nd year and 3rd year students as they start their group film projects. 
The VFX & Animation Library is located outside Toontown and Winterfell, and is free for all our currently enrolled students.
