The Ways to Rio animation  about Olympic rower Tom Ransley’s Olympiad, leading up to Tom qualifying for the Rio Olympics is introduced by young people. Tom  narrated the animation which is based entirely on his own words. The young people were guided through the process under the watchful eye of John Dargan, Lens Based Media tutor from UCA, Canterbury. (Petra Matthews-Crow Astor College for the Arts)
