Kallisti Media, a film company on the cutting edge of both media and technology, has produced a short film that extols the similar experiences and sacrifices of soldiers of all eras. “War of Wars” is a special short subject made in honor of Veterans Day. This is the first 3-D documentary about, and including the participation of, veterans. The viewing online will be in 2-D.
A “War of Wars” 3-D series of large-format films will debut in 2012 on select giant-screen theaters around the world. In the meantime, Kallisti has created a shorter version for the public to view on YouTube in advance of Veterans Day. The goal is to deliver a compelling experience for people to remember why we observe Veterans Day.
The film uses the observations of modern-era veterans (Vietnam, Gulf War, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan) and historians’ narration, set seamlessly against imagery of World War I, to highlight how the shared universal experience of soldiers never changes. The project also includes a charity component, aimed at benefiting veterans causes. An informational drop-down on the YouTube screen will list the names and websites of veterans groups and organizations that people can contribute to or volunteer with; and Kallisti has included the Legion on that list.
