I Am The Guard
The National Guard contracted Hooah Production Studios to develop a motion graphics and animation piece that would bring to life the heritage of the Guard throughout our nation’s history. Based on a poem written in the 1960s, “I Am The Guard” takes the viewer from the Guard’s beginning in the Revolutionary War to the present day. The poem was updated to include post-‘60s events, such as the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Middle Eastern conflicts and Hurricane Katrina.
We created the 3D motion graphics scenes from art works and photographs taken on battlefields and domestic natural disasters, animating the action to produce an emotionally stirring effect. Each scene establishes a sense of the courage and sacrifice that members of the National Guard have shown – and continue to show – in every occasion they have been called to serve over the past 300-plus years.
Inspiring music and professional voiceovers complete the production, which serves as a tribute to our citizen solders while reminding those they protect of their commitment to duty.
