None other than Apollo 13 Astronaut Fred Haise will be credited as an executive producer on our film featuring General Tom Stafford, Apollo Reflections: The General on Gemini & Apollo, and you still have time to join him!

We are currently editing this film and seeking funding through our Indiegogo campaign.

While not directly involved in the film’s production, Fred was one of the first to support it and his generous support very much helped make it possible.  I am extremely grateful for and humbled by Fred’s generosity and kind words:

“The product I know will be outstanding but that is strictly due to the talent and efforts of yourself … thanks for your great work preserving some history from those who flew!” 

When Freddo sent his support for […]
