Veterans Digital & Oral History Project's picture

About

Veteran Films is pleased to be partnering with Aberystwyth University to run a pilot project called the Veterans Digital History  we will focus on veterans of a specific contemporary conflict. Our objective is to collect and preserve the personal accounts of recent-war veterans and make them accessible to all via an online library of filmed interviews. So, that future generations may hear directly from those who served and better understand the realities of war.

 

The Digital history project is a venture undertaken by our veterans, whom are learning and developing the skills required to produce short films.  The veterans develop at different speeds and skills, but work as a team to produce the interviews you are going to see. Naturally, as their skills develop and confidence grows, we hope the viewer will notice a change in the quality of films as the project progresses.

them accessible to all, so that future generations may hear directly from those who served and better understand the realities of war.

 

It is important to emphasize that the project will be heavily focused on veteran volunteers serving in various capacities, for example as trainers, interviewers and interviewees. More specifically, the project aims to train four veterans to interview ten veterans that have been involved in a contemporary conflict Contact us HERE.
