Apollo Reflections

We continue to work on production of our feature film, “Apollo Reflections”, a feature length documentary featuring the reflections of Apollo Astronauts, other spacefarers, scientists, artists, and others who were part of, witnessed, have a connection to, and were inspired by the Apollo missions to the Moon, with an anticipated release date in 2023. Here is a promo for the film.

Overview:

When I was a kid, anything was possible. We reached for the stars and touched the moon, and on the way discovered Earth, our home. When I reflect on Apollo, I think of our home. I think of heroes and humanity, the quest for knowledge and the need to explore. New perspectives and inspiration. What does Apollo mean? What can it tell us about ourselves and our place in the universe, 50 years ago, and today? This film answers these questions. And more.

On December 21, 1968, just days after my sixth birthday, humanity first left […]

“Apollo Reflections” Film & Titan II Missile

After producing four short films in the Apollo Reflections series, we are now focusing our attention on our feature-length documentary, “Apollo Reflections.” During our recent trip to Tucson, AZ for Spacefest we were fortunate to interview several more Space Shuttle era astronauts and others who witnessed Apollo history or were inspired by it, including Shuttle Astronauts Eileen Collins (1st US female mission Commander), Mario Runco, Kathy Sullivan (1st US female Spacewalker), Linda Godwin, and Clay Anderson, as well as authors, and the only college journalists given NASA press credentials to report on the Apollo 11 mission, David Chudwin and Marv Rubenstein, and Ryan Nagata, among others.

We also shot some great B-Roll at the Titan II Missile Museum south of Tucson.

RUSTY SCHWEICKART APOLLO 9 & BEYOND

 

In this profoundly beautiful and moving film, Apollo 9 Astronaut Rusty Schweickart discusses the Apollo 9 mission, his life-altering spacewalk, and our cosmic birth. Rusty describes testing the Lunar Module, the first true spaceship that would four months later land men on the moon; his historic spacewalk, the first EVA of the Apollo era; and the incredible beauty of the Earth from space.

Beyond the Apollo 9 mission itself, Rusty goes much deeper to explore the philosophical and evolutionary implications of humanity’s first steps into the cosmos, describing the powerful effects of his “five minutes” alone on the Lunar Module porch as he observed the Earth below and pondered the big questions of existence – questions he would come to answer back on Earth.

The film is in 4K with a run time of 48:06 and […]

Lucy West is an amazing space artist. In this short clip, filmed for our Apollo Reflections project, Lucy discusses her art and its influences, from first looking through a telescope at Halley’s Comet, to watching the shuttle launch from her Florida home, to the influence of  Apollo 12 Moonwalker and artist, Alan Bean.

 

Here’s a work commissioned by Apollospace owner, Jeremy Theoret, for his partner, Silvia, of their favorite spot near their home on the Rio Grande River in Albuquerque, NM, called “Home.” Measuring 36×24, the painting depicts a romantic winter scene overlooking the river looking toward the Sandia Mountains with the majestic Milky Way Galaxy rising, as winter birds, including Sandhill Cranes, Canada Geese, and multiple species of ducks fly home for the evening.
