Bradenton Locals Set to Film New WWII Documentary



Kim Galway, executive producer of Victory Journey, is making strides in the Bradenton/Sarasota community to fulfill the promise she made to her grandfather, World War II Canadian Veteran George G. Blackburn. In interviews on At the Movies with Gus Mollasis, Galway and co-producer David Taylor, share ways in which individuals and companies in the community can sponsor, donate and be a part of Galway’s retracing of the deployment route taken by her Grandfather and Allied soldiers concentrated on NW Europe. Galway and the crew will stand where her Grandfather stood on May 8, 1945 on German soil, in time for VE Day’s 75th Anniversary on May 8, 2020. In writing three books about his experience in combat, George G. Blackburn’s hope was that his grandchildren and future generations would not soon forget the sacrifices made by the allied troops, the struggles they faced and the battles they fought in World War II. Over the past year, Galway has recruited a small team of local filmmakers who share her passion for WWII, and the important timeless message Victory Journey sends. Currently in pre- production, the crew is seeking community support to help make this documentary a reality.
