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.
Funds for our film production will 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.
No production work is required from members for their participation
in the campaign –
Likewise, there are no fees required from members.
Willingness to participate and enthusiasm are all that's required from
qualified members who will
be selected for acting roles, full cast and
crew for the production of "The War
of Lions" – More info below.
Our campaign goal is $5,625.000 of which approx. 10% ($562,500) will
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 in detail on this page.
Our priority is to obtain a team of directors who will manage all aspects
Full cast & crew, cinematography, acting, wardrobe,
art, soundtrack, 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 for more details. In time we'll need a total price with clear defined
full scope-of-services that the
price would provide and responsibilities
that would be met. Ultimately, it will take open discussion among
applicant directors to organize a cohesive film production team.
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.

categories of stamps with abundant supplies but limited

various pledge levels, sufficient
to cover the pledges of sponsors totaling $5,625.000 USD.

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
year's great collectors. Having been the youngest of our film's six male
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
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.

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.

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
a single family novel loaded of engaging originality.
181-270 will not be "added" to page 180. Instead, balanced parts
of the seven controversies will
be "inserted" amid pages 1-180.
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.

THE CENTRAL THEME IN "THE WAR OF LIONS"Stamp-collecting is part of our story’s theme, but only as the bond that
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
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
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
into a global crowd of homeless exiles!
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
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
re-opened the former "Great War" for their own vengeful satisfactions.
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.
BUYS BACK THE TRUTH ABOUT WWII
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
our protagonists' collections to reward Kickstarter’s campaign backers.
Hence, the beloved collectibles that our protagonists treasured
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,
having ended WWII ten-days in advance of the Soviet claim of victory.
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,
had loved and cherished even more than their stamps.
Our film will present Poland’s valiant heroes of the eastern borderlands
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
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.
