This is an animation I made in 2018, but never got round to publishing. It was intended to give an impression of the interior of the Brennan torpedo station at Fort Camden. Camden Fort at Cork held one of the secret Brennan torpedo stations between 1887 and 1905 and was one of only 2 stations to have 2 launch ramps, such was the importance of the harbour at Cork. This animation is a walk through the installation, based on original drawings, and was produced in collaboration with Norma O’Connor for her MA in Digital Arts 2018.

Hi, I’m Rob, otherwise known as VBBSMYT.
I create the animations on my iMac using Cinema 4D, which I find very intuitive, and allows me to add smoke and flames, and then send the model to my trusty Render farm.
I make my models as accurate as possible through reference books and particularly good drawings. You may have seen my animations of early torpedoes and machine guns on YouTube. I enjoy finding out how things work and it has been fascinating to track the development from the late Victorian period up to World War 1.
