The Demise of Blackbeard

Share Collapse

How exactly was the famous pirate Blackbeard killed? This animated documentary tells the story of Edward Teach's final battle.

This animation was made in a group at Leeds Arts University. We were tasked to make a short animated documentary and we chose to create this.

A fun, short little history lesson. The art was good, and the animation was pretty nice. The voice was good too, although the quality wasn't the best I think, but it was a university project. The editing was nice, and the presentation was easily digestible and clean. Overall, a good educational video. You might wanna change that rating to T though, because of the slight murder. I know there's no gore shown but still.

This was fun, informative and looked great! I really enjoyed this animation and checked out the creation blog which was a wonderful read; Thanks for providing that! I can relate to you and the storyboarding/animatic process bogging you down, it seems to be the toughest part of the process!

The rigs came out pretty good and you had a solid success with the tweening, especially with the turbulent displacement! The water was incredibly captivating and really help add to the vibe you and the team were going for.

Really enjoyed this fun informative flick dude! Hope you and the team were graded well!
