Once again, the video was created by the famous film school, RMIT University from Melbroune, Australia. In cooperation with Florian Milz from Reaper Entertainment, production manager, animator and lecturer Simon Norton and his team of around 50 film students dedicated themselves to the song “Beerbarians” from the current Tankard album.

Simon comments:

“The new animation video for Tankard “BEERBARIANS” is already the 11th successful collaboration between Flori from Reaper Entertainment and the animation students of RMIT Melbourne in the Bachelor of Design (Animation & Interactive Media) course.
And – it’s already the THIRD animated video we made for our favorite band TANKARD!
– see also “Fooled by Your Guts” (2014) and “Don’t Bullshit Us” (2018).
This latest video was created from July 2022 to February 2023, with large and small contributions from a total of 49 current animation students. The challenge for the students was to create an epic world for the BEERBARIANS, including the beloved Tankard mascot. And – they did it!
Enjoy the epic adventures of TANKARD the BEERBARIANS!”
