As far as cool CVs go Jeff Pratt must have one of the coolest. After studying mechanical engineering at Purdue University he headed south to Florida to work for NASA as a Space Shuttle Systems Engineer at Kennedy Space Center.
After 8 years Jeff decided animation was his thing. He quit NASA, deciding on a radical change, and went to study Graphic Design and Computer Animation.
After graduating he made the jump to Pixar, working as an animator on films such as 'Toy Story' 1 and 2, 'A Bugs Life', 'Monsters Inc'. and as modeller/rigger on 'Finding Nemo'
After taking some time off, Jeff moved into teaching Animation at Expression College just outside of San Francisco before he crossed the Atlantic to start designing and teaching our Animation courses.
Having Jeff onboard is an honour for Escape and tutors of his calibre are the standard across all of our course disciplines. As the man himself said:
If you have the passion and dedication to animate then Ill help with the rest.
