Filmmaker page for cinematographers, actors, graphic artists, soundtrack musical composer, and bilingual writers and publicists.

  

OUR PROJECT IS TO PRODUCE A PILOT FEATURE FILM
WITH FOUR SEQUEL MINI-SERIES EPISODES FOR TV

about a historical true story set during WWII.

"The War of Lions" script is edited in five lengths: 90-min., 135 min., 180 min., 225 min., and 270 minutes.  A historical novel based on
a true story about family, friends, and WWII in Poland and Italy.

Each page of the screenplay will be depicted as a scene-by-scene graphic novel for the director and cast.  The artwork will be renderings from vintage photography by protagonists and the Perantoni family.  Some of the photos can be seen HERE. >  Copies of the graphic novel will also be given out as one of our various rewards for Kickstarter's backer-support.

"The War of Lions" centers on the lives of civilians during WWII
— Their interaction with Germany's occupation soldiers.
— Then, with their Polish friends as Italy's liberators.
— Last, with Polish liberators after their betrayal.

REVIEWER COMMENTS:  "Civilian protagonists presented very
real and tangible" -  "Nazis outwitted by guile and fearlessness." "Accessible and unique." - "Cunning and tenacity of the main protagonists." - "Compelling story about family life in wartime." 
"A unique perspective to view the WWII era."
"Wit and courage during Nazi occupation."

Events about civilian life before, during, and after WWII can provide a broader comprehension of the 20th century, lifting veils perpetuated
by military and political history.

REVIEWER COMMENTS:  "A fresh view of WWII." - "Perspective never seen before" - "Story that needs to be told" -  "Focuses on civilians" [and their Lwów friends in Polish uniforms] - "A breath
of fresh air regarding most WWII stories" - "Fantastic originality"
"Original and not what we have typically seen of WWII."
"Intriguing and unique."

SCHEDULESThe production director-team will select participants.
Then, our 30-day Kickstarter Campaign will follow soon afterward. 
Legal c
ontracts for stipulating payment arrangements will need
to be co-signed prior to initiating any film production, graphic novel, and related screenplay rendering.  Payments for film production and related team efforts will begin as soon as possible after the campaign has been successfully funded.

QUALIFICATIONS: Applicants should write a detailed description
of the job you propose to offer and set your own total price —  The selection process will ask for resumés and other detailed information at appropriate times. Professional abilities will be
the foremost consideration in the selection process.

SUBMIT YOUR TOTAL PRICE: Please be well informed of the full and total requirements of your job prior to presenting your price,
so that you calculate any unforeseen needs that might occur.
 
A member's failure to account for all expenses could become his/her financial disaster and also a burden for the entire team.

TEAM PARTICIPATION: Our film production depends on achieving sufficient crowdfunding from a successful Kickstarter Campaign.  Therefore, duly contracted members will add their professional qualifications, and experience in our Kickstarter Presentation 
as images, videos, and written details.  
We aim to showcase 
our team members in order to make the campaign succeed.

 

 Sincerely,
George and Valerie Perantoni

A WORD OF CAUTION: The price that you submit will be the most critical feature yielding success or failure for you or your company.  It is imperative, therefore, that you calculate a price sufficiently HIGH to cover any and all unexpected factors.

Please resist the propensity to provide a "competitive price" because funding cannot be re-negotiated after the campaign.

Our screenplay is a family novel in war drama genre.
It's an adaptation of Arrivederci Leopolis by George Perantoni and Sam Ivey (Amazon 2011). Its style is upbeat as much as possible, by not indulging too much in the horrors of the war, while still alluding to the atrocities happening.

It's not a film to shock or terrify. Instead, it's a story presenting uncommon historical facts, even unveiling some, and staged to provide history and entertainment at
the same time.  Not a re-enactment, but a captivating
novel loaded with fascinating originality. 

Our exceptional screenplay can reach the common interests of diverse audiences in Europe, USA, Canada, and Australia.

The script’s extraordinary storyline ought to attract large international audiences  --  in view of the screenplay's
seven thought-provoking controversial subjects.

SEVEN THOUGHT-PROVOKING CONTROVERSIES:

(A true story in real chronology)

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 THOUGHT-PROVOKING HISTORICAL EVENTS.

Seven remarkable controversies presented in their
true historical chronology. Not 7 separate narratives,
but seven sensational events embracing our story's
main theme* - From Poland's summer of 1939 -
- to liberated northern Italy in 1945-1946.

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