Apollospace is embarking on an Indiegogo fundraising campaign to complete our Apollo 13 film, “Reflections: Apollo 13 in Pictures and Words” with Apollo 13 Astronaut, Fred Haise. The most incredible Apollo images, fully restored at the highest resolution, are brought to life for our “Apollo Reflections” series – films featuring Apollo photography described by the men who were there, beginning with our first film released for the 50th anniversary of Apollo 7, “Reflections: Apollo 7 in Pictures and Words,” featuring astronaut Walt Cunningham. Your contribution will help us complete the second film, “Reflections: Apollo 13 in Pictures and Words,” with Apollo 13 astronaut Fred Haise, as well as record additional astronaut interviews.
If a picture is indeed worth a thousand words, then the story of Apollo, told through the nearly 20,000 photographs taken during the eleven manned Apollo missions between 1968 and 1972, would literally take tens of millions of words to tell.
The Apollo Program was, undoubtedly, one of the greatest accomplishments in human history. Human beings, for the first time, left the Earth and gazed back at our beautiful planet, the source of all we have ever known, learning more not only about the wider universe, but also about ourselves and our own world.
This project cannot possible begin to come close to telling the full story of Apollo – what we are doing is producing the most beautiful, fully restored, high resolution Apollo mission flight photographs available anywhere and featuring them in a series of documentary-style interviews with the Apollo Astronauts who took them. Collectively the Apollo mission images and the reflections of the astronauts about them tell a story the likes of which will never be forgotten. These iconic images will long endure.
Some of our favorite Apollo mission photographs, and the favorites of the astronauts who took them, are the focus of a series of interview documentaries Apollospace is producing with a focus on Apollo program photography as we celebrate the 50th anniversaries of […]
