PANORAMA: JAMMING TO THE TOP
A real look at the challenges bands and players overcome to play steel pan in Brooklyn.
Check out the trailer below.
Panorama: Jamming to the Top follows the journey of several steel bands in NY as they prepare to compete in an annual steel band competition that’s held behind the Brooklyn museum, known as Panorama.
The story is all about the journey. It’s about this vibrant community in Brooklyn and how much they love steel pan. Through their preparation for Panorama, we see how their love and passion helps them to overcome several challenges and obstacles facing the pan community in Brooklyn.
Panorama: Jamming to the Top will give viewers a whole new appreciation for the steel bands that do and do not make it to the Panorama competition. It will give audiences a behind the scenes look into the lives of a modern day pan player and the sacrifices they make to play pan in their community.
Over 30 pan players and supporters participated in this documentary.
WE NEED TO KEEP PAN ALIVE IN BROOKLYN
- Rents are going up and bands are getting pushed out of their yards.
- Panorama attendance continues to decrease and the number of bands able to participate continues to drop.
- A majority of the people outside the pan community don't even know Panorama exists, let alone where to see local bands.

OUR GOAL IS TO RAISE $6600

Risks and challenges
The only risk is not finishing the documentary. We've come too far to not finish it, we're going to knock this out the park. There are so many people rooting for us and the success of this project. We will not let them down. There are already two rough drafts of the project and we are preparing for the final draft.
I'm super passionate about this project and will not rest until it's done. Ok, I'm going to rest, but the project will be complete by the end of May.
