|Meet the man behind Games of Thrones|
This week, Escape Studios is hosting another of their free "Evening With..." events, this time on Wednesday 5 April at their Shepherd's Bush studio, with Henry Badgett. Henry is a VFX Supervisor at BlueBolt, and one of the original supervisors on Games of Thrones.
This is a superb event for everyone who would like to find out more about 3D and VFX. Escape Studios even throw in free pizza and beer - how can you argue with that?
What's this about?
It's an "Evening With" event...with Henry Badgett - VFX Supervisor at BlueBolt. Henry joined Blue Bolt at its conception 7 years ago, as a 2D Supervisor on Season One of Game of Thrones, and is now one of their main VFX Supervisors.

What's happening on the night?
