Real-Time Animation Of The Sinking Of The Titanic

This is a two hour and forty minute animation depicting a real-time recreation of the sinking of the Titanic, with text annotations. The video starts with the crew spotting the iceberg, and ends with the ship breaking in half and completely submerging. It's weird in the movie I feel like they made it seem so much faster. Still, even two hours and forty minutes time couldn't prevent 1,500 people from going down with the ship. You know they say the captain is supposed to go down with the ship, but if I were a captain on a sinking ship I would be putting a fake beard and mustache and saying, "Hola. ¿Dónde está México?"

Keep going for the video, but feel free to skip around unless you're the boredest you've ever been.

Thanks to BostonSteve, whose accent I could detect in his email.

    Would be an interesting VR experience.

    but where's the guy that hits the propeller?

  • Étienne Pelletier

    the stars position are wrong

    Watched this at 2AM by myself, (skipping a bit) and had nightmares. This is a nightmarish hell and such a horrifying way to die.

  • Well shit... you're not wrong.

    That selfish bitch should have never thrown that big diamond off the back of that salvage ship.
    At least she died just after and went to a Titanic ship of purgatory for ever. Where she can check in, but she may never leave.

  • More entertaining than Cameron's version.

  • Damn! Shots fired!

  • GeneralDisorder

    I can't decide if this is too soon or not soon enough.

    I'll never lat go, Jack.

    I'll never let go.

  • Raise your hand if you skipped to the end.

    Grim. Stupid. Arrogant. People lost their lives because of a lack of proper preparations and stuck up arrogance on the day and the idea that lifeboats were unnecessary and dangerous. Bad.

    Actually, in the documentary Titanic: Case Closed (on Netflix as Titanic's Final Mystery? I highly recommend watching it), it came to the conclusion the iceberg was not seen until it was too late because of a mirage-like effect on the ocean.

    Maybe they should have gone slower because of iceberg warnings, but didn't because none were even detected... BUT before that incident, ships had not fully sank by hitting an iceberg. Which was why it was such an unbelievable event.
