It was decided that the set should be kept minimal to allow for an easy and believable transition between the separate locations in the story: Iraq and the South East of England.
model making and design process
A particular challenge was the use of film footage in the show. The different requirements a film set in comparison to a theatre stage has in its purpose and layout, made designing it an exciting task and tied in nicely with my background in film set design. The task at hand was to create an environment which imitated an army base tent in Iraq in the early 2000s. The filmed scenes functioned as video diary of a young soldier who is communicating with his girlfriend via video messages.
