On The Origin of Species by Adam Skinner

Adam Skinner, 22, a student at the Norwich University College of the Arts (NUCA), has produced a film as part of the BBC's A History of the World project.

Adam, along with other second year students on NUCA's BA animation course, focused on objects from around the world which they feel have contributed to our culture, heritage and development.

"I chose Darwin's On The Origin of Species because the book shocked everybody when it first came out," said Adam from Norwich.

"I thought taking the book as an object and showing the reaction people had to its publication is a great moment in history to focus upon.

"It's been a massive project, a real workload - but that's good as it's given us all a taste of working in the real world, with a client's deadline and working with the BBC is a potential door opener and that's great," he added.

The NUCA students, supported by BBC Norfolk, had four weeks take their film from concept to completion, with the final work assessed as part of their BA degree in animation.
