Interactive video lesson plan for: Titanic sinks in REAL TIME - 2 HOURS 40 MINUTES

Activity overview:

From our upcoming video game "Titanic: Honor and Glory" This is a rough draft ("pre-vis") of our sinking animation. Be sure to contribute to help make our project a reality! http://www.titanichg.com/contribution/

Goes well with our memorial Live stream video: https://youtu.be/OMO8xaylvOc

Dedicated to the 1,496 souls who lost their lives on April 15, 1912 and to the memory of the 712 who survived.

This animation was created to go along with the 104th Titanic sinking anniversary podcast we held on April 14th, 2016.

This is our full-length animation of the Titanic sinking, beginning with the iceberg collision and ending with its disappearance. The point of collision is at 1:06. This is a complete animation; not a short animation that was slowed down to match real time. This is also highly accurate, though we have already documented improvements we plan to make for the final game. The animation includes text frequently appearing with what is happening on board the ship. This includes visuals of various interior rooms flooding, lifeboats launching, rockets firing, and the Californian on the horizon. The animation was created in Unreal Engine 4. The exterior model used is not our final model, but an older model created by one of our team members.

There are many informational messages spread throughout the video, but here are some of the main points to jump to:
