MAV London trip

Some of us from the MSc Animation course went down to London for a few days to take the Degree Show on the road.

We visited The Mill, Escape Studios, Jellyfish Pictures and MPC - Moving Picture Company. It was great to see and hear from these studios the work they do, what they look for in potential employees and general advice about the VFX and animation industry.
I visited The Mill and MPC last year with the Undergraduate course, showcasing our films in the screening room at MPC. However this years visit I got to see a bit more of the MPC building as we were in a different screening room. We received a lengthy presentation about the company and the industry, followed by a Q and A - felt truly inspired and motivated once it was over!

We also had some spare time to explore London, visiting some well-known landmarks and soaking up the London buzz :)
