Tis a fine day to see Lego pirates.
Isaac Botkin and his family made an incredible short film animation called "Men O' War" for a Texas Film Academy.
You can see the film on YouTube here:
Isaac and his family used the GPO for the score, and you can watch the film with just the music here (no dialog): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gB4CEQG6Qps
Excellent writing, especially the theme song, and the music fit the film perfectly. It captures the suspense, the conflict and the majesty of the ships. This film should win an award.
