Flying Eagle Productions, LLC was founded by 12-year old Gerry Orz in 2013. The idea for the company was initially born after Gerry Orz produced and directed the short film "Day of Silence" at the age of 10. The film caught a lot of attention in the entertainment industry as well as within educational and activist circles. The movie became a trilogy and was released in a new format in 2013 under the title "The Equation of Life" which immediately scored a number of awards and was picked up for distribution. This is Flying Eagle Production's first foray into the entertainment marketplace.
The company's main goal is to provide educational and good quality media that can benefit generations to come. Productions directed to the younger audience will be truly created for the kids by the kids, bringing an element that will help with closing the gap between generations and uniting different audience interests into one.

The National Association for Family and Community Education has been a strong voice in promoting a healthier and better life for individuals, families, and communities. Assembling in Washington, D.C. in 1936, a determined group of rural farm women had a vision, "to strengthen adult education, to share their good sense and experience for improvement of home and community life, and to initiate and promote projects of national importance for the protection of the American family." Early efforts focused on support for a national school lunch program, development of local public health services, immunization programs for children, implementation of the first bookmobiles, and national safety programs. From the 1930's and into the 2000's FCE's mission to strengthen families through continuing education, leadership development, and community action has remained the same. Leadership through education is the key; volunteerism is the means. FCE's mission - past, present and future - connects with the needs of families.
