The Hostages
- Main Titles

Client: HBO
Agency: Palmy Inn/Foreign Affairs/Show of Force

52 American diplomats and citizens held hostage at the US embassy in Teheran. The hostages were held for 444 days, from November 4, 1979 to their release on January 20, 1981. In collaboration with our friends at Palmy Inn and Foreign Affairs  we set out to make a mark in history as HBO made this remarkable documentary series. Main Title and graphics for the episodes were crafted in 3d animation. Enjoy!
