Watch an exclusive ‘making of’ 2014 Graduate film ‘Wait for Me‘, including the team constructing a 74ft trench above the ground in Salisbury.

Synopsis: Arthur and Annie Graham say farewell to their son William, as he departs for war, in the winter of 1914. Drifting further and further apart, the couple try to cope with their son’s absence.

Wait For Me’ has been written to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the First World War this year. As proud members of the Imperial War Museum’s First World War Centenary Partnership, the crew aim to celebrate the centenary by commemorating the sacrifices made by so many one hundred years ago.
