‘Apollo 11’ Director on Editing 11,000 Hours of Footage Into a Coherent Movie [Interview]

During the 2019 SXSW Film Festival, I sat down with Apollo 11 director Todd Douglas Miller and space historian Robert Pearlman. This is a film that I fell in love with from the moment that I saw it during the world premiere at the Ray during Sundance.  While I regret that I was unable to see the film on an IMAX screen, Apollo 11 is one of those films that you must experience on the biggest screen you can find.  It’s not often that a documentary crosses over into the editing category dur...

A folding hairdryer that’s as simple and elegant as it gets

Over the years we’ve seen so many flat-pack, compact hairdryers that they probably deserve a category of their own.The beauty of compact hairdryers is because there are multiple ways of achieving the same goal. Some hairdryers come with folding handles, some with rotating handles, some with handles that detach, it’s just a playground for design details really. Take for instance Offject’s Apollo 11 hairdryer concept, which features a handle detail that allows the hairdryer’s vertical vent to dock...

‘Apollo 11’ Review: It Takes a Village to Get to Space in This Tense Documentary

It feels appropriate that Todd Douglas Miller’s documentary Apollo 11 would come out on the heels of First Man , Damien Chazelle’s drama about Neil Armstrong and the moon landing. Chazelle’s film highlighted the stakes felt by otherwise ordinary people as they worked toward an extraordinary goal. Miller’s documentary, made up entirely of NASA archival footage and broadcast news clips, works as a perfect companion, using historical footage to create a fittingly tense account of the mission...

Stunning Trailer for Apollo 11 Brings Us Never-Before-Seen Footage of the Moon Mission

Sundance Film Review: ‘Apollo 11’

Progress — scientific, technological, evolutionary — works, more or less, in a straight line. The Industrial Revolution happened, and that gave birth to the 20th century. The Wright Brothers happened, and not too long after that we had an airline industry. On July 20, 1969, we landed, and then walked, on the lunar surface, and then…well, […]

Woman Sues NASA for Allegedly Damaging Her Precious Apollo 11 Lunar Sample Bag

In 2017, Nancy Lee Carlson of Illinois auctioned off a genuine Apollo 11 lunar sample bag for $1.8 million dollars. That’s a good score given she purchased the bag for $995, but she was expecting as much as $4 million. The reason for the low value, she says, is that NASA damaged the bag—and she’s now suing the space…Read more...

New Ryan Gosling Movie First Man – Neil Armstrong Biopic – Review

New Ryan Gosling Movie First Man – Neil Armstrong Biopic – Review | Written By: Lee I’ve spoken at great length about how my oldest son Jason has plans to colonize Mars. This isn’t a pipe dream, he has it planned in his academics and the years which he’ll work for Elon Musk at SpaceX. After this he’ll most likely take the second manned mission to Mars and hopefully spend the rest of his life there which breaks my heart. But he has been infatuated with space since he was 2 years old so I hat...

World history seen via a shop window | Brief letters

Apollo space missions | China’s emissions | Denis Healy sightings | Telephones | Identifying artFurther to Peter Avery’s letter about watching cricket outside a TV rental showroom (4 August), in the late 1960s I was an avid follower of the Apollo space missions.

Rare bag of moon dust to be auctioned for millions of dollars

Souvenirs from humankind’s missions to the Moon are extremely rare; NASA usually holds on to moon rocks or moon dust instead of allowing private owners to keep them. But they couldn’t hold on to one bag of moon dust. The artifact – supposedly collected by astronaut Neil Armstrong – is the property of a Chicago lawyer, and now she plans to auction it off. After Armstrong took that historic leap for mankind on the Apollo 11 mission, he did what many of us would do – grabbed a space souvenir in t...

How Margaret Hamilton Programmed the Apollo 11 Moon Landing

One of the founding “fathers” of the software industry was in fact a mother. She coined the term “software engineering” and wrote the code that took mankind to the moon. On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were just three minutes away from touching down on the moon when an alarm sounded and the error code “1202” appeared on the lunar module’s computer screen. Within moments, mission control had to make a call: to abort or not. Thanks to Margaret Hamilton, the computer programmer who...

John Glenn was a hero; was he a pioneer?

John Herschel Glenn passed away recently at age 95. He was the first American to orbit the Earth, on board Friendship 7 in February 1962, and before that, a much decorated war veteran, serving as a fighter pilot in both World War II and in Korea, finally retiring as a colonel in 1965. As if that wasn’t enough, after leaving NASA, he won a US Senate seat, representing his home state of Ohio, and served for 25 years. John Glenn was certainly a hero. To some extent all astronauts are: what they do ...

This Story About The Nikon Shooters At The Apollo 11 Launch Shows What It Used To Be Like To Be A Photographer

For shooters my age, it’s hard to fully imagine a world in which professionals only used film. I still shoot film and I develop my own black and whites, but when I’m sitting down on Lightroom or editing in Premiere Pro, I find myself thankful that I can so easily access my photos and footage. Everyone always talks about the difference in look for film, and the work that it takes to get your image out, but this detailed report of the Nikon cameras used to capture the Apollo 11 brings up somethin...
