It is a challenge to produce a fully-animated feature-length historical documentary sourced from conflicting texts in multiple foreign languages. The Fantastic Flights of Sophie Blanchard has received support from a number of grants, in-kind donations, and over 100 Indiegogo funders.  Primarily, the budget for this unconventional project has been kept afloat by filmmaker Jen Sachs, who has dedicated her own funds and over 10,000 hours of her time to see it to completion. As the film nears its post-production phase, additional crew are needed for sound and color finishing.  Please consider making a tax deductible donation to take Sophie to the next level.
