Mr Tennant, aged 21, has been studying animation and electronic media in Dundee's School of TV and Imaging. He graduates next month with an honours bachelor of design.

DMA Design, designer of Lemmings and Grant Theft Auto, was impressed by Mr Tennant's ability to animate 1,000 hedgehog spines simultaneously in his short film, Prickly Pair.
