David Guggenheim approached us to put together an animated piece to close his most recent documentary, TEACH, a film that follows “the struggles and triumphs of America’s education system through the eyes, minds, and hearts of its most essential resource: teachers.” After an emotional and tear-filled screening, we set to work creating a piece that aims to concisely sum up the call to action; Support a Teacher, Thank a Teacher, Become a Teacher.
