Our company was founded in 1976 by Jim Jenner, a former newspaper writer and CBS News producer. PACCOM is one of the oldest video production companies in the Pacific Northwest. The company's early production clients included major corporate clients such as Microsoft, Olympia Beer, Peter Kiewit and others. The firm eventually concentrated on the production and sale of television commercials on networks such as ESPN, CNN, USA, TNT and other leading cable programmers. By the late 80's the firm was the largest volume producer of commercials in the cable television industry, creating an average of over 2, 500 television commercials per year. PACCOM was well known for its high quality as well, winning numerous national and international awards, including a Clio, for its production excellence. The firm was the all-time highest total award winner during the first decade of the Cable Advertising Bureau's national awards competition. By the 1990's PACCOM had a staff of sixty and numerous offices throughout the Northwest. In 1993 the advertising production and sales divisions were sold to Tele-Communications, Inc (TCI), then the world's largest cable provider. During the time he ran the advertising operation Jim Jenner used his spare time to create a documentary on his childhood hobby, pigeon racing. Released in 1990 his "Marathon In the Sky", narrated by the late Michael Landon was an instant international success. Following the sale of the advertising division Jenner continued to produce documentaries, teaming up with former PACCOM employee John Paget to create an award-winning series on historic U.S. Highway Route 66 as well as best-selling instructional videos including "Piano for Quitters" and "Baby Massage". He continued to create documentaries on pigeons including "Oldest Feathered Friend" in 1996 and in 2001 was invited by Beijing Television to create a twenty part series on pigeons titled "Share the Blue Sky." In 2002 he and Paget also created a documentary on Olympia, Washington's capitol city called "Go With The Flow". In 2003 Jenner moved the company from Washington State to Philipsburg, Montana, a small historic mining town in the Rocky Mountains. From this new base he has continued to produce films, including the popular series "Secrets of Champions". Jim has created these films working with another long-time PACCOM associate, editor Alan Halfhill. The programs feature some of the world's most successful pigeon racing enthusiasts, including legendary English champion, Frank Tasker who has been a friend and production advisor to Jim since they first worked together on "Marathon in the Sky". In 2006 the company converted its production equipment to High Definition [ HD ] and Jenner has created a minimum of one film per year.
