Behind WW1 Uncut #6 – Barbed Wire: Cottage Industry

18 Apr 2014 Behind the Scenes

For a new short sequence in WW1 Uncut, we needed to visually show the production of barbed wire moving from a small cottage industry to a global one over the course of the War.

We started with a Grandmother slowly knitting barbed wire in her front room, and pulled back to show a soldier knocking at her door with an order form. We then pulled out again, past factory after factory until we can see the entire Earth wrapped in barbed wire.

Barbed wire was a cottage industry during the war
