AUB Graduates work on Oscar Award Winning Film Gravity

Come and study a MA Film Production or MA Animation Production course at AUB and find out what you can achieve.

Ten graduates from the Arts University Bournemouth’s (AUB) Animation Production and Film Production courses have worked on Alfonso Cuarón’s Oscar winning blockbuster space thriller, Gravity.

  • Gravity won 7 Oscars, one of which was for Best Visual Effects, the spectacular highlight of the film. Years of work went into the Oscar victory, and recent graduates from AUB played a key part in the process.
  • Work on the film was led by world-leading visual effects (VFX) company, Framestore, whose satellite VFX studio is based in the Enterprise Pavilion on the Arts University Bournemouth campus and has close links with our Animation and Film courses.
  • Graduates from AUB were recruited by Framestore to work on the paint, roto and tracking for the film as part of an education-industry partnership between AUB and Framestore.
  • This was part of a project, named Building the Bridge, an initiative with The National Centre for Computer Animation that aims to establish Bournemouth as a centre of excellence for visual effects and animation.
