Futility takes particular inspiration from research into film title design! The eerie atmosphere of Robert Greenberg's sequence for Alien being my personal favourite. Other clear influences include Stephen Frankfurt’s sequence for To Kill amockingbird, a fantastic early example of great film, editing and typography.
The poem itself is a reflection of Owen’s experience in WWI, but the it also echoes the act of war in general and his disillusionment towards it. This is what my piece aims to do, using the ruined bunkers as a metaphor of the broken soldier and his lack of identity within the army.
