Armistice Day (or Remembrance Day in some parts of the Commonwealth) and Remembrance Sunday, are times for reflection and commemoration of past wars, in particular the two World Wars. If you’re marking this by making a video, here our top three templates to help you.
First, consider our top tips to creating a Remembrance film:
- Be subtle. It’s a delicate subject matter and every decision should be carefully considered and above all, be tasteful.
- Keep pacing slow and steady, to reflect the content and mood you want to convey.
- Think gravitas and respect—you can create a build and emotion as much with the decisions of what to leave out as you can with what to put in.
