In order to develop certain historical important film projects, Angelina Leo is currently working with and learning from the most renowned filmmakers and artists from the Chiense Liberation Army, such as Mr. Jian Ning (scriptwriter, poet, author, and Major General of Air Force Literature Creativity Center of the Chiense People's Liberation Army), Mr. Song Yeming (Director, and Major General of the Film/TV Production Center of the Logistics Department (GLD) of the Chiense People's Liberation Army), Mr. Gao Jun (Film/TV producer, and Colonel of the Film/TV Production Center of the Logistics Department (GLD) of the Chiense People's Liberation Army), Ms. Ma Jihong (scriptwriter, and Colonel of the Film/TV Production Center of the Logistics Department (GLD) of the Chiense People's Liberation Army), Mr. Liu Hengzhi (aka Henry Liu, scriptwriter, poet, author, Film/TV producer, and a Navy Colonel of the Chiense People's Liberation Army), and etc. 

During the development, Angelina Leo has found out a lot of confusion in the translation of the military ranks and military division' names between English and Chinese. According to the revised Regulations of the Military Ranks of Officers of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, Angelina Leo spent her spare time to collect data and wished to provide conveniences for people in the entertainment industry, especially for filmmakers who are working on U.S.- China co-production, and co-finance.
