This project was a fun departure for me and friends at Team DDG, diving into a side of IBM few of us had experienced before in all our cumulative years of working with the tech giant in various capacities.
It was my pleasure to work closely with the IBM Federal team and learn about situational understanding, battle readiness, military equipment, and even the differences between camouflage patterns used by armed forces all around the world! Their knowledge helped guide the script and bring this fictional story to a wonderfully cinematic level.
Nolan Cabeje was a visual storytelling master, helping me lay out how we could make it all work and look great. Ed Riew offered professional polish in the form of expert video editing as well as lending his commanding voice to really bring the script to life. Chris Bystrom coordinated everything and everyone, wrangling it all together and even jumping in with edits and expanding his ever-impressive skill set even more.
