I missed the 104th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic last week.
After we passed the 100th, there really hasn't been much to obsess over, though I think that building an exact replica is just a waste. Is it wrong that part of me hopes it sinks on its maiden voyage - - that is assuming that it is every constructed.
As much as I say I'm over my fascination with the Titanic, then something like this comes out: a 2:41:19 recreation of the ship sinking in real time.
Yes, it's long, but not as long as standing on deck waiting to die. Yet, I bet the passengers wish they still had 2:41:19 left. ....though if they did, they probably wouldn't watch this.
Granted, I didn't watch almost three hours of video. Who has that kind of time. But I did skip around - chronologically - as, like always, I wanted to get the ship breaking apart and sinking.
Yes, it's morbid. But in my defense, it's like a ghost ship. The simulation has zero passengers aboard. Though at the end, there are screams - hence the ghosts (?).
The graphics are extremely well done and some nice POV shots.
I totally get not that most folks would not find this fascinating, but I did.

I saw this yesterday. Like you, I found it fascinating. And, like you, I skipped through a lot at the beginning, before you could tell that the ship was actually starting to sink. Someone put an awful lot of work into this. Well done!
I have watched this several time; I keep coming back to it. It is morbid in a way. I think it is the serene slow demise that intrigues me. Oh so quiet waters and not at all violent - in contrast to the awful agony that was on board. Fascinating video!
I would think that the majority of people would think it to be "bad luck" to build a replica of Titanic. I mean, who'd buy a ticket for that? Besides, everyone wants bigger, bigger, bigger nowadays when it comes to cruise ships, so this replica wouldn't begin to compete.
First, I'm impressed you used a Jars of Clay song. I'm not sure why I'm impressed, but I am.
And second, I was really hoping for little people jumping off like fleas on a dog about to get dipped.
There is a Doctor Who episode called "Voyage of the Damned" (with Kylie Minogue in it even, as well as Clive Swift/"Mr. Bucket") and the spaceship is named Titanic, and they make some funny references to the namesake.
