Oscar & Bafta Winner Picks Up Honorary Degree

A man who won an Oscar and Bafta for his visual effects work on the film Inception has been given an honorary degree by Bournemouth University.

Paul Franklin, who has also worked on the Batman trilogy, is a frequent visitor to the university, giving guest practitioner lectures to computer animation students and he was also the Undergraduate External Examiner for around five years.

The university has made him a Doctor of Arts at a graduation ceremony with thousands of students at the Bournemouth BIC .

Professor John Vinney, vice-chancellor of Bournemouth University, said:

“We recognise people who have excelled in their chosen field who will act as inspirational role models, both for graduates and their families.”

More than 5,000 students graduated in Bournemouth this week.
