About Tom Hignett

Whilst studying Mechanical Engineering in Birmingham I was exposed to a lot of computer based design processes. This coupled with the increasing availability of powerful home computers and digital photographic equipment quickly lead to a keen interest in digital creative arts.

It wasn't long before I decided to cut short my engineering studies and pursue my interest in the digital arts. This ultimately lead me to studying Film Production Technology, a course dedicated to developing the use of digital technology for creative output. Despite its title the course helped me develop a range of skills far beyond the realm of filmmaking.
