The film is somewhat similar to Soldiers’ Stories, a 2014 documentary short by Oscar-winning producer Nick Reed (The Lady in Room 6) and director Jonathan Kitzen. That project was built around restored stereoscopic stills taken by British, French, German and American soldiers in WWI. The filmmakers used a lot of the Ken Burns effect and stitched stills together to create an entire 3-D film short, with voiceovers by U.S. veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. That film went on to a lengthy run at the U.S. Infantry Museum at Fort Benning, Ga.
Reed has built a company out of the realization that the metrics for video advertising are as absurd as the adverts that are slapped in our faces.
