MOON LANDING LIVE (MOONSCAPE)
MOON LANDING LIVE allows you to experience the Apollo 11 moonwalk through the eyes of the astronauts. Photographs that were taken in sequence are assembled into panoramic views; the TV and colour film footage is shown in sync with the radio communications and with the photos, allowing you to see rare and unusual details of the historic event from multiple viewpoints and with unprecedented clarity by using the best available scans and transfers of the original material. Most documentaries during the past fifty years have used footage whose quality was degraded by multiple analogue transfers: Moon Landing Live instead gets as close as possible to the sharpness and richness of the original images.
The photographs used have been sourced directly from NASA and integrated with the complete restored TV broadcast. All the astronauts’ communications are subtitled for clarity as a complement to the Air to Ground audio. Moon Landing Live doesn’t “cheat” by using footage taken out of context or from other Apollo flights for dramatic purposes. Every picture and every sound is original and true to the actual sequence of events, as documented by NASA’s Apollo Lunar Surface Journal.
The only special effects allowed are image cropping and stabilisation, where needed, colour correction and digital image stitching to generate high-definition panoramic views from the photographs.
