Steel Eagle can join at the concept stage, giving you script/story support, ensuring complete authenticity and realism in dialogues (military speak anecdotes etc), military tactics, correct kit and equipment... We can join your project at any time from early stages of script writing, on the shoot itself or in the post production phase helping the editor and director cut the most realistic film.
Most films need advice of some sort this is especially so in films which have scenes of a military or special forces nature. How weapons are handled, fired or even just carried; how military cast or background walk, talk and hold themselves or how military equipment, vehicles or aircraft are used can either ensure the absolute reality of a film or can conversely destroy its credibility. How covert Special Forces units work and conduct themselves.
In order to ensure complete authenticity in your production Steel Eagle can provide bespoke military and Special Forces advisors. Steel Eagle cover all aspects of Military, Close Quarter Reconnaissance, Close Quarter Battle techniques, house assaults, surveillance and all aspects of counter terrorism. Our Special Forces Military Advisors can help on any stage of the production, advising on script and story development, securing appropriate equipment and locations as well as giving on set advice during filming and post production. Our advisors are unique in that all have served within Special Forces and are current on all operational capabilities from military land based operations to covert counter terrorist projects.
