Directed by Neville Astley with artwork by Mark Baker. The Big Knights is BBC Television series of 13 short animated films. This is a typical episode. Brian Blessed is the powerful voice behind Sir Morris, giving him the unmistakable air of a natural disaster.
Mark Baker has a distinctive style of his own. A sea captain and his one-man crew have to contend not only with pirates but with a feisty young woman whom they misguidedly save from drowning. It was nominated for an Oscar in 1999.
