Beethoven's Kreutzer Sonata by Sam Thorley

Samantha Thorley, 20, 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.

Sam, 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'm not entirely sure why I chose the Kreutzer Sonata as my object," said Sam, who lives in Boston, Lincolnshire.

"I think it's because when I researched further into the piece I discovered it has inspired thousands of people since the late 1800s.

"I wanted to animate this object to include people from different eras who were inspired by Beethoven - and to show that it may continue to inspire musicians in generations to come," she 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.
