    Hey guys, i've been studying and perfecting my craft of videography and eventually filmmaking and came up with an idea for a feature film i'd like to at least attempt to make down the road. Here are the details:

    The story tells the story of my great-grandfather 1st Lieutenant James "Jim" W. Kiser Sr who served as a Bombardier in the European theater in the later part of the war. Grandpa Jim, as I knew him, served during the Daylight Bombing Raids on Berlin on March 4, 1944 where his squadron completed their mission. His crew were one of many not to make it back but thankfully he did survive as a POW in northern Germany and was liberated at the end of the War in I believe April of '45.

    I'm still putting the storyline for the film together but if you would like more details from it or would like to help out in anyway, right now mainly just for storyline ideas, please feel free to add.

    Welcome aboard...
    So will this be a homage to your Grandpa, kind of like a documentary?
    Or will there be a plot running through it?

    My vision is there will be a plot that aligns very closely with his story. Of course absolutely everything that occurred is not know during the times he served so some things will have to be inferred, created and added into the plot to make it realistic; but my goal is to make it as historically accurate as I can. Some examples of similar movies would be Hacksaw Ridge, Saving Private Ryan, Dunkirk or 1917.
