As documentary filmmakers and historians, we take great joy in shaping and distributing stories that will make a difference to society. In the case of the story of Pan Am, we believe that what the company and its people accomplished was tremendously important, not only for commercial aviation, but for making the 20th century the "American Century." The fact that this story is still little known to the majority of Americans, and especially young Americans, makes it even more critical to tell now.

But bringing all this to the screen and to schools around the country is an expensive process. That's why we need your help. With many traditional sources of funding drying up, individuals and corporations have often come to the rescue of documentary projects like this. We hope that you will share our excitement about the story, the importance of preserving Pan Am's place in history, and the scope and quality of our project.
