Level Zero Heroes Tribute /Motion Graphic Drawing/

Level Zero Heroes Tribute
/Motion Graphic Drawing/

An animated version of a drawing I did as a tribute to the heroes fighting on the ground to protect us all.
You can find the drawing /and buy the print/ here: http://nicola-montefusco.deviantart.com/art/Marsoc-423555716

The drawing and this video were inspired by the great deeds Italian special forces and American special forces /in particular RRAO, Brigata Sassari and Marsoc/ did while conducting combat operations in Bala Murghab, Afghanistan.

“Dedicated to the special operators who protect us this drawing features a team of Marsoc Operatives and a member of Italian Special Forces Task Force 45.
The drawing was inspired by the indie movie Infil_Exfil made by a former Marsoc member who is going to publish is book about Marcos activites in Afghanistan, titled Level Zero Heroes, soon.
If you like this I beg you to also fave the official Facebook page for Level Zero Heroes.”
