Dear Friends,

Welcome to our 'Film Production' plan, which may also be referred as
our Kickstarter plan. In here all the details for our film production are
spelled out and regularly updated as more details become available.

The main factor that needs to be established is that all funds for our
film production must come from a successful Kickstarter campaign 
for which the Perantoni family will provide all the necessary backer
rewards, including shipping & mailing, and all related costs.

Our campaign goal is $5,625.000 of which approx. 10% ($562,500) will
remain with Kickstarter for processing our payments. We've estimated
$475,000 for costs associated with the backer-rewards, taxes and legal
services. Thus, the estimated film production fund is $4,587.500 USD.

Kickstarter's "all-or-nothing" campaign rule means that we must reach
our
$5,625.000 goal in 30-days, or the campaign is dropped altogether.
I honestly believe that we can reach far more than the $5,625.000 goal
thru a publicity plan that I will soon present its details on this page.

Our priority is to obtain a team of directors who will manage all aspects
of film-production: C
inematography - acting - wardrobe - artists - music
etc. The directors will have our creative lists to facilitate their selections
from all who submitted for parts in "The War of Lions."

Experienced film directors who are interested, may inquire with us by
email, mention details, ask questions, etc. In time we'll need a
total price
with a clearly defined full scope-of-services that the price would provide
and the responsibilities that would be met. Ultimately, it will take open
discussion among applicants to organize a cohesive team of directors.

Once the full team, players and crew are formed and legally contracted
with us, each participant in "The War of Lions" group will be promoted
on Kickstarter with demos, photos, videos, etc. in order to showcase
its members — Then, the campaign can be scheduled.

Sincerely,                                              LINK to our KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN

PS: There are no fees nor production work required from members for
their participations in the campaign. The only requirements are: 1) your
serious interest – 2) your willingness to be contracted by our legal team
and – 3) promotional materials of your (or your company's) abilities for
publishing on Kickstarter and on our websites, and elsewhere.

Likewise, there are no fees for contracting with our legal team.
But, contracting fees from other legal firms are not paid by us.

LINK TO VIEW "THE WAR OF LIONS" KICKSTARTER PAGE

Our Kickstarter Page can be viewed at the above link. It's not active and
it will neither require visitor information nor a sign-up/log-in – It's just an
"inactive draft copy" – However, the draft it contains is very informative
about our project to produce a feature film with mini-series. It provides
full details about our project's historical value involving 7 international
controversies that had been left hidden since 1945-1946 and it explains
how our film's ability to disclose the truth will benefit the 21st-century.

Our project goal of $5,625.000 USD is stated on top of the right column.
Beneath it are listed our methods suited for providing sufficient rewards
to the backers who will pledge $5,625.000 USD. Initially we listed sixteen
16 methods (items A thru P)
for various levels of contributions (pledges).

Note that all 16 methods derive from our unlimited digital resources and
printed productions of literary works directly related to The War of Lions.
Please note that reward-items J-K-L-M are also from 
unlimited resources
... PLUS a few rare stamps were ADDED ... thus becoming limited.

We created the 4 examples mentioned above (items J-K-L-M) by adding 4
categories of stamps with abundant supplies but limited to 169 J-rewards,
156 K-rewards, 133 L-rewards, and 118 M-rewards. We have tons more to
add from the collections of our protagonists. Prior to the campaign we'll
have listed many new backer-rewards at various pledge levels, sufficient
to cover the pledges of sponsors totaling $5,625.000 USD.

So then, aside from our initial 16 unlimited sources (items A thru P) each
new backer-reward 
will include one of the 16 unlimited items PLUS 1 rare
stamp / or 2+more rare stamps / or rare philately / or collectible coins / or
banknotes / or other items formerly collected by our protagonists.

Also, we plan to complement our list of rewards with items from our film's
soundtrack and other memorabilia related to "The War of Lions" film and
its mini-series, including souvenir postcards bearing printed and
original autographs of our film's team, players, and crew.

 TRADING STAMPS FOR FILM FUNDING 

We invite you to browse thru Victor Perantoni's collections of philately
and stamps grouped by their nation. Victor Perantoni was one of yester-
year's great collectors. Having been the youngest of our film's six male
protagonists, he was fortunate to have acquired most of the collections
that were passed on to him by four of the other five. The next youngest

protagonist was his older brother Luigi who died in 1988. Victor passed
away in 2002. He was the last one to die.  (
see scrolling epilogue)

Note: It will take several months to post all the collectibles needed for
Kickstarter Rewards. Other nations will be added to the navigation bar
and all pages will be utmost filled with collectible items. The contents
currently posted on each
page represent neither the tip of the iceberg
nor the 'tip of the tip' — MANY more collectible items will be added in
order to reward our Kickstarter backers who will provide funding for

our film productions of "The War of Lions" with its four mini-series.

THE ACTING ROLES OF YOUR IMDb SUBMISSIONS

Your submissions to "The War of Lions" have been very encouraging.
Valerie and I enjoyed reviewing each of your submissions and we read
each message that many of you have sent. Your submissions made us
certain to have reached the talent needed for the ten casting roles.
For that, we're very grateful. Thank you!

Likewise, our appreciation is also extended to actors & actresses who
submitted for the same ten roles on our websites or on Facebook.
We are grateful to all of you. Thank you!

We noticed that several actor/actress submissions included qualified
film-directors and some had also mentioned interest in helping direct
"The War of Lions." Obtaining a cohesive team of directors is our top
priority at this time.
Please see the bottom 3 paragraphs directly above
my signature on the top white "dear friends" letter. Interested directors
should inquire with us by email, mention details, ask questions, etc.

You might know that the original 99-page script for our feature-film has
transformed into a
90-page pilot for our 5-part TV mini-series.
 The pilot
is followed by four episodes of 45-minutes each,
totaling 270-minutes.

However, it should also be known that we have even more material to
add six more episodes. It will be discussed with our future directors.

Meanwhile, we posted pages 1-180 of the mini-series' script. That is,
"The War of Lions" / "Reprisal of Lions" – Parts 1-3 of 5. CLICK HERE.

The above link to pages 1-180 of the script show our protagonists filling
the ten roles as described in the IMDb casting call. The next link provides
page-numbers to help find protagonist roles in 39 highpoints. (There are
several 
other highpoints, however these 39 suffice the link's purpose.)

Notice that the page numbers are in consecutive order of the script. Thus
reading the 39 descriptive titles from top to bottom provides a transect of
our story from start to finish. Exceptions are the flashbacks to year 1929
involving the role of young 18-yr-old Victor (Vittorio).

WHAT WILL PAGES 181-270 (parts 4+5) BRING?

SEVEN THOUGHT-PROVOKING CONTROVERSIES.

1) MUSSOLINI IN POLAND.
2) WAR ON THE SONS OF ITALY.
3) MASSACRED BY COMRADES.
4) THE IMPACT OF MONTE CASSINO.
5) THE DESTRUCTION OF VOLARGNE.
6) THE WORLD'S LEADERS BETRAY POLAND.
7) JOSEPH STALIN STEALS THE WAR'S TROPHY.

Seven remarkable controversies presented in true historical timeline.
Not 7 separate narratives, but 7 dramatic events embracing our story's
main theme* from Poland August 1939 to liberated north Italy 1945-46.

*Our story's main theme contains lighter diverting portions in between
the seven historical events with random flashbacks to 1929, joining
them into a single family novel loaded of engaging originality.

Pages 181-270 will not be "added" to page 180. Instead, balanced parts
of the seven controversies will be "inserted" amid pages 1-180.

Thus, the page-numbers listed in the 39 highlights will change by adding
90 more pages at points fitting the war's true chronology. The insertions
will be connected with existing dialogue and action
 of our protagonists.

Although the first controversy, Mussolini in Poland, took place 10 years
before WWII, the script will show additional flashbacks in the height of
the war in Italy. The other six controversies will also be placed with the
roles of protagonists in WWII-Italy, currently in the first 180 pages.

Controversies #6+7 describing WWII events taking place in Poland and
distressing Polish liberators in Italy, are treated with shocking dialogue
and devastating action among protagonists in Italy. Massacres that took
place in Lwów and elsewhere in Europe (controversy #3) are treated with
crushing distress among Italian protagonists and survivor friends in Italy.

Protagonist roles during WWII events are complemented with voice-over
narration by Victor, short newsreels, and images of vintage publications.

THE CENTRAL THEME IN "THE WAR OF LIONS"

Stamp-collecting is part of our story’s theme, but only as the bond that
unites the protagonists. Overall, our story's main theme treats their war-
time experiences.
It's fair to say that before WWII stamp-collecting had
been more popular than video games are today. Stamp-collecting fits in
the social fabric of true historical stories of the period.

The central theme in "The War of Lions" unveils obscured accounts from
WWII that today's audiences are largely unaware. Our story achieves this
through the experiences of Victor's Italian family and their Polish friends.
Their wartime experiences had been related several times by the same
protagonists, during and after the war.

The chronology that "The War of Lions" narrates had been described by
Victor – and in similar ways by the others too – as the 'Heartbeat of WWII'
i.e., the source that in August 1939 had given essence to the war's start,
and then pumped its lifeblood constantly for 6-years, first in Poland, and
then continuously until the war's last day, 29 April 1945 ... in north Italy. 

All along, the Polish people had suffered thru every single pulse of the
war’s miserable 'heartbeat' – during which over 6 million did not survive.

It's the true history of WWII ... but it had been obscured and marginalized
by Joseph Stalin during the final 12 months of the war. It's the truth that
Stalin persistently endeavored to suppress, for in his mind the war must
not have ended leaving the truth exposed ... i.e., Heroic Polish Soldiers!

 

THE DOMINANT THEME OF OUR STORY

Motivated by brilliant insanity, Joseph Stalin accomplished his goal thru
CRIMES, SCHEMES and MANIPULATIONS  from May 1944 to May 1945.

He was a skillful negotiator and crafty manipulator. Using 'Machiavellian'
talent Stalin robbed the glory of Poland's Armed Forces and he crowned
himself with it. Moreover, he took their beloved nation as his war trophy
and he declared all former members of the Polish military services to be
"Enemies of the Polish State." Thus, Stalin separated Poland's victorious
epic warriors from their beloved families and homes – transforming them
into a global crowd of homeless exiles!

In a nutshell, that's the HIDDEN TRUTH about WWII. The OBSCURED and
SUPPRESSED and CENSORED TRUTH about the actual conquerors who
defeated Nazi-Fascism and brought down the Third Reich ... to its death.

But, Joseph Stalin eclipsed the truth. He blocked it out with sly darkness.
Then, to prevent any resurgence of it after the war, the Bolshevik tyrant
buried it hidden behind an iron curtain. Joseph Stalin is the top villain of
the 20th century. 
He accumulated sins against humankind that reached
the height of Heaven – where he defied even God by separating well over
100,000 military husbands from their wives in Soviet captivity.

The world’s reality had been shaped by Stalin since 1920, ever since the
end of WW1,
as it still is even today. Then, in August 1939 he achieved a
conspiracy with Adolf Hitler that would defy world history. Both villains
re-opened the former "Great War" for their own vengeful satisfactions.
Hitler in the Compiègne forest — and Stalin in the Katyn forest.

Both villains satiated their lust for revenge in 1940, but with enormous
price tags and huge yearly increases over the following five years.
It cost Adolf Hitler his total defeat in 1945 — and Stalin paid with more
than 24 million sons and daughters of Mother Russia.

 

OUR FILM BUYS BACK THE TRUTH ABOUT WWII

Stalin had laboriously modified and minimized the truth about WWII and
today it'
s at risk of being lost forever from historical memory. For that
reason Victor's family is inspired to dedicate the remaining items from
our protagonists' collections to reward Kickstarter’s campaign backers.

Hence, the beloved collectibles that our protagonists treasured all their
lives will be used to
restore the rightful victory that Joseph Stalin denied
to Poland's Armed Forces for the complete defeat of Nazi-Fascism, thus
having ended WWII ten-days in advance of the Soviet claim of victory.

Also, to bestow international recognition of the infamous betrayal that
Stalin had manipulated by stripping away the upright sovereign identity
of Poland, the nation that Carlo, Padre, Andre, Franki, Luigi, and Victor
had loved and cherished even more than their stamps.

Our film will present Poland’s valiant heroes of the eastern borderlands
who together with others in the east had bonded into an invincible force
of Lwowian warriors – the avenging 'Lions' who struck fear in the hearts
of beleaguered, guilty Wehrmacht troops – thus defeating Nazi-Fascism.
But, only to be betrayed in the height of their victory, for they embodied
the truth that Joseph Stalin had resolved to bury.

Although the truth was buried hidden behind the iron curtain, Poland's
patriot warriors who were scattered all over the globe, had safeguarded
it for over three generations. Also, their loyal compatriots who endured
50-years of tyrannical Soviet captivity, did the same.

The stamps, coins, philately, and other items collected by our film’s
protagonists will pay-in-kind to expose the truth about WWII that the
Polish nation had suffered for, and millions had died … to witness.
