I argued with myself for a while, deciding if I should upload this or not, but I figured I might as well.


Recently, my US History class told everybody to "make something creative", from somewhere between the 1860's-1920's, involving American history. I thought: "What's more American then blowing things up?" Nothing, right? So, for my project, I took three well known ships from American history and I animated what sunk them.

There is no sound, unfortunately, but I don't think it's really a big deal. This flash is pretty short anyways, so just hum something in your head til the end of the movie. At least it makes the load time quicker.

I apologize, but the ships are traced. I don't usually trace things, but I made an exception, since it was a school project.

I do not expect amazing scores for this, mostly since it's so short, it's educational, and it doesn't have any music/sound effects. It took me about seven 100-minute classes to make this, not counting down-time. Maybe if people like it, and I choose not to be so lazy, I'll upload a new one with music.

If you need extra credit for YOUR history class, feel free to steal my flash and slap your name over it. As long as it is ONLY for history class. Otherwise, I expect to be paid.

So, anyways, enjoy! (Or try to)

That was pretty good! Very rarely is Flash educational! Good job! The animation could have been somewhat better, but, overall, that was just dandy! Innovation indeed! You must be a nautical scholar! Give me more! Heck, give us all more!

It's not bad, but it doesn't seem to belong here..

Yeah it's got pretty decent animation, I'll give you that, but I guess the whole concept of an educational flash is kind of bland here. Although it's not bad or anything, it's just not going to get a lot of views. I'd like to see something entertaining come out of this though. I think you can do it. Oh yeah, and obviously, add sound. Other than that I don't really have much to say, except it's some pretty decent work!

I thought it was pretty good.

Traced or not, the ships looked great. And I liked the concept. I hope you got got a good grade! I'd like to see another, longer version. Sinking ships=good.
