Thank You For Your Service


Thank You For Your Service was inspired by the objectified and fantasised treatment of war veterans within modern media. It was produced as part of a practical dissertation project examining special and practical effects in war films. The exploration of war veteran’s true emotions and feelings was a core focus within the film, which highlights the irony of contemporary interviews and questions that follow a typical targeted and leading question approach. Furthermore, we intended to address men’s mental health, questioning toxic and chauvinistic depictions of characters as well as those who’s true feelings are hidden inside.
