Multimedia storytelling project seeks support for production of documentary and book about WWII veterans who fought in the Philippines

Valor Project launches Kickstarter campaign

The Valor Project: World War II Stories from the Philippines, a multimedia storytelling project spotlighting World War II veterans who fought in the Philippines, has launched a Kickstarter campaign, running through April 3rd at 11:59pm PST, giving history buffs, military history enthusiasts, educators, and Asian Americans an opportunity to support this unique endeavor.
 
The Valor Project embraces the untold story about the brave historic contributions that men and women made during World War II in the Philippines,” said writer/director Rodney Cajudo.  “As many of these courageous individuals have already died, we must document the stories of the survivors, as well as the memories from their families.”
 
Kickstarter is a web-based fundraising platform that has helped artists and creative entrepreneurs raise over $1 billion dollars since its inception.  Interested supporters may visit www.kickstarter.com and search for “The Valor Project” to learn more about how to offer financial support to help the project reach its $30,000 goal.
 
The Valor Project’s first release will be a feature-length documentary, followed by an art book featuring photographs, essays, artwork, poetry, and other historical content.  One of the first of its kind, The Valor Project will give veterans, their families, and historians the opportunity to share their insights and stories, most of which have never been told.
 
“It’s our hope that The Valor Project can serve as a historical bridge, connecting generations while preserving history,” said producer Edward J. Mallillin.  “As the grandson of a Purple Heart recipient, I have a personal interest in seeing this project come to light.”
 
Written and directed by Rodney Cajudo, The Valor Project is produced by Arcent Productions, LLC.
