War Genre

War Genre

My chosen film genre for my film opening is the war genre. War is a horrible event, in which many people are affected. The soldiers that have fought should be remembered for the sacrifices they have made. I want to show what it are like for a soldier on a battlefield and how killing the enemy can affect the mentality of anyone even people who appear strong. I want to also show the conditions and bitterness of war. I would like to focus on The Second World War, I have always liked the 40s and I have a wide knowledge of that era so that would help.

What brought life back to the WW2 film genre in recent years would have to be Steven Spielberg’s ‘Saving Private Ryan’ in 1998. It captured a generation of people who are now interested in WW2. From there the HBO 2001 TV series called Band of Brothers (Produced by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg) also was another great success.
The typography of the War genre tends to be either simple Times Rome Numeral or in the style of a typewriter. Typewriters are associated in the army because of history,
·       Flashbacks
·       Bombs and Explosions
·       Dirt, Mud, Smoke
·       Death, Blood, loss of friends
                        .     Guns, Sounds of guns, artillery, planes, tanks etc
