Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 11, 2013

Anthony Cerniello, creator of the viral video Danielle, that documented the aging process, has partnered with crowdfunding non-profit AIM Hatchfund to raise funds for his next film project. Faces of War will use groundbreaking visual effects to place the viewer directly into the experience of someone who suffers from PTSD.

Anthony Cerniello’s previous short film, Danielle, created a person from still photographs and examined the aging process by challenging the viewer to think about the struggle of getting older and how we cope with that inevitability. To date, Danielle has been viewed around the world over eight million times. Cerniello’s next project, Faces of War, will combine stories from real soldiers and the use of digital prosthetics to create a narrative about the struggles of PTSD.

In order to complete Faces of War, Cerniello has launched a fundraising campaign on AIM Hatchfund to raise $125,000 to help cover production and crew costs. Cerniello will be working with preeminent industry professionals including Paul Fedor (Pacific Rim, Sorcerer’s Apprentice), Tully Summers (Avatar, Batman, Independence Day), Dan Katcher (Game of Thrones), and Marc Perrera (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Pacific Rim). The finished film promises to be a unique perspective to a very important social issue.
