Pretend Entertainment is an independent production company specializing in developing and producing documentary programming for film and television. The founders, Christian Fry and Raúl Leckie, have specialized in extreme location projects for the past fifteen years. Each project, whether in the bitter cold of the Arctic or underwater in the South Pacific, requires a specialized crew, equipment and relationships. Pretend Entertainment draws on a broad network of talented producers, writers, directors, cameramen, and editors in putting each project’s crew together.
In 2008, Pretend Entertainment created, developed and produced the fully funded original television pilot, "Wingmen", for the History Channel. “Wingmen” explored the exciting and challenging world of aviation, showcasing some of the most spectacular flying machines in the world.
Pretend Entertainment’s giant screen / IMAX film, Air Racers 3D, released on April 5, 2012. "Air Racers 3D", narrated by Paul Walker, is a breathtaking exploration of the fastest race in the world combined with spectacular air show entertainment, filmed on location at the legendary Reno National Championship Air Races. Today's most elite pilots fly for position, wingtip-to-wingtip, skimming 50 feet (15 m) above the ground around an oval course at twice the speed of a NASCAR race.
