How do I personalise the human effects of conflict?

How do I personalise the human effects of conflict?

Daisy Hutton, 19

This is a short film exploring the futility of war by animating an old public information film voice over. Themes include the loss of innocence and the diminishing of identity during times of conflict. I used the image of a young boy and his dead butterfly to create an uneasy feeling of dislocation in the viewer. The last image of the numerous flags shows the sheer scale of lost lives and the insignificance of a single life.
