US Army: Escort Training

When a soldier dies, their body is escorted from Dover or where they died, to their final resting place by an Escort solider. SAIC had created interactive training pieces for Casualty Notification Officers and Casualty Assistance Officers, so the Army again tapped SAIC to create training for this duty. A scripted dramatic reinactment and interviews with escort soldiers and the civilians who support them were handed me to create a short film detailing important moments of escort duty. Usually the dramatic and the documentary stories are told separately, but in order to keep the running time under a half hour, I decided to combine the two which caused a little eyebrow raising. However, I convinced them it would work and upon seeing a fine cut, the client agreed.
