RuTC Alumni Member Tom Box Gives Advice to IT Students

Wednesday 5 April 2017

On Tuesday 14th March, Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) alumni member Tom Box visited our Level 3 IT BTEC Extended Diploma students to speak to them about his journey so far.

Tom left RuTC in 1997 and went on to study animation at Bournemouth University. After graduating, Tom and three of his fellow students set up BlueZoo, an animation company which has been nominated for multiple BAFTA awards.

RuTC students heard about how BlueZoo was started in a garage in Southend by three friends who were eager to make animations and have since gone on to work with companies such as Nickelodeon and the BBC.

The advice Tom gave to the students was to “be unique” and to “keep doing things in new ways”.

He concluded his talk by advising students that in order to progress, you need to “work hard, do what you love and always be nice”.
