Lupang Hinirang: The Philippine National Anthem (animation)

The National Historical Commission of the Philippines and Rock Ed Radio commissioned me to direct and create a fully animated video for the Philippine National Anthem “Lupang Hinirang” (“Chosen Land”) for Independence Day 2012.  The musical arrangement is by Francis de Veyra of Radioactive Sago Project and was also performed by Radioactive Sago Project. I had a wonderful time imagining, illustrating, and executing this video which I’m honored to present below. Please enjoy in HD.

    Pinalabas ito bago magsimula ang isang seminar na pinuntahan ko kaninang umaga. Unang beses ko lang ito nakita. Nanindigbalahibo ako. Pagkatapos ng awit, hindi ko alam kung iiyak ako o lulundag sa tuwa, o isisigaw sa buong mundo na ang galing galing mo. Ang galing ng Pilipino. Nahihiya ako na hindi ko masabi ng tama yung magagandang bagay na gusto kong sabihin. Maraming salamat sa iyong regalo.

    I watched and looked at everything on your website. I love your artwork!! I live in the US and seeing your animations and reading your work touches base with my nationality that I do not expose myself so much anymore. Thank you!!!

    Ang galing Arnold. Super! Goosebumps! It captures the essence of the anthem. I love the contrast of the “ang mamatay ng dahil sa iyo” to the infant, as internally, I got the message “ang mabuhay ng dahil sa iyo”. More power!!!
