This week saw the world’s leading movie visual effects firms descending on London for Escape Studios’ The VFX Festival.

Attendees were treated to talks and presentations that ranged from ILM talking ‘Rogue One’, to MPC talking about their Oscar-nominated work on ‘The Jungle Book’. The VFX houses were there to discuss their previous work, speculate about what the future of CGI looks like, and inspire future generations of VFX artists.
