1812: Napoleon's Final Invasion

  For my third year of university, I've created a documentary animation about Napoleon's fatal attempt at invading Russia in 1812.  It's based on Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, which I played recently on tour with Soar Valley Music Centre and fell in love with.  I've used sketches from Naomi Allen (using original paintings and engravings of the event), had help with translations from Victor D'Allance and designed and animated it myself using Adobe Photoshop, After Effects and FInal Cut Pro.
