Modelling Hurst Castle

Hurst Castle in the New Forest was built between 1541 and 1544 by Henry VIII. It was famously a prison for Charles I in 1648, before being used as a military fortress through both world wars. This 3D animation recreates the castle when it was first built by Henry VIII. It was made for the Shedding New Light on the New Forest’s Past exhibition at the New Forest Centre in Lyndhurst. The animation was created by Christopher Beckett, Creative Technology Department computer gaming student at Bournemouth University using UE4.
