Build a new world with Unreal Engine this summer

Do you work in animation or a related 3D industry such as VFX, motion graphics, film, and TV? Or do you teach others in these fields? Are you located in Europe? If you answered YES on ALL the above questions, we welcome you to join a free course designed to give you animation superpowers in Unreal Engine!


Monday, 26th July till Friday, 20th August

The Summer of Unreal is a free, four-week boot camp where artists learn practical real-time skills from industry vets. The course is created in collaboration with Epic Games and Escape Studios and backed by five amazing European partners, including Crater Training Center.

In other words: Welcome to not only the most ambitious free programme to date but the largest Unreal Engine training ever attempted!

And what’s the goal, you may ask. Well, we would like to help over 1,000 European professionals build their business or art practice with Unreal Engine’s animation tools.

While you’re expected to have some knowledge of 3D software, you can be a rookie in Unreal. We’ll start with the basics and work our way up to the eye-catching stuff, like stylized cel-shaded/photorealistic objects and digital humans.

Escape Studios

During the course, you’ll:

• Receive 20 days of training—most of it in the morning
• Gain insights from European studios
• Learn what makes a project successful
• Earn exclusive badges
• Work with artists from across Europe
