Hot off the back of recently being awarded the University's Distinguished Alumni Award for 2017, we welcome multi award winning Hollywood animator Marco Marenghi, back to campus.

An electronics engineer by trade, Marco was unemployed when his wife spotted an animation course at the University of Glamorgan in the mid 1990s. Marco took his second chance at education as a mature student and hasn't looked back since. With an impressive filmography including working for Sony supervising the animation on blockbusters such as I Am Legend and Ghost Rider, along with the Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, DC Comics' Green Lantern and later directing the animation for the Walking With Dinosaurs movie, Marco is a truly a leader in his field.

Hear more from Marco -  his journey, challenges along the way and gain inspiration from a home grown talent who has made it onto the world's biggest stage. Opportunity for Q&A.
