British creativity and Fantastic Mr. Fox

The Guardian is running a piece on Tuesday about the importance of creative industries to Britain’s future. It includes an interesting little tidbit relating to Fantastic Mr. Fox:

Animation graduates from the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) recently helped to complete the new Fantastic Mr Fox film. Despite starring the voices of Hollywood, it was made almost entirely by British hands in London.

I even found this old announcement at the university’s website. Very cool.
