Video. One of the most hotly tipped films of this season is the space thriller Gravity. Its special effects have been described as 'out of this world'. The film stars Sandra Bullock, George Clooney and a lot of computer graphics. Many of those images were bought to life in Dorset.

A group of recent graduates, hot from their animation course at the Arts University Bournemouth, got to work on the film. Their success is helping to grow the town's reputation as a centre of excellence for CGI.
