Student Animation Project Part of Penryn 800 Festivities

Animation and Visual Effects students are to produce a number of short animated films as part of Penryn 800 celebrations – marking 800 years since the founding of Penryn. 

The students were recently visited by Mark Snowdon, the Mayor of Penryn, who gave an insight into the town's fascinating history.

Kathy Nicholls, Senior Lecturer, said: "The organisers of Penryn 800 have been very enthusiastic about the prospect of animated films that will bring to life some of the strange and wonderful stories from Penryn past and present.

"To help with their research the students have been on walking tours of Penryn with Town Councillor Chaz Wenmoth, who inspired them with stories including the last of the Cornish Killigrew family, George Killigrew, who was killed by a friend in a Penryn tavern in an argument over the piratical exploits of his grandmother - Lady Jane Killigrew. Watch this space for more updates on the progress of the students as they work through the complex creative process of making animation."
