Certainly worth a look this feature film based on the 'classic' ideas of a Mars mission (rework of Chesley Bonestell paintings): Man Conquers Space
This film is based on an alternative timeline to the Mercury-Gemini-Apollo era of reality - it is based on the premise that all that had been proposed in the early 1950's in Colliers actually came to pass - and sooner than they expected.

Through the expert use of special visual effects and computer-generated imagery (CGI), the world of wonder and imagination expressed though Collier's has become real. The film Man Conquers Space looks like a documentary made today, and is peppered with archival footage from the dawn of the space age during WWII, through to today, narrated by the people who were there - the engineers, the astronauts, the scientists, the visionaries, the politicians.

This site has been around for years... I hope it is finally being produced. Last I looked he had come up with the funding to move forward... so let's hope... It's a cool concept.

I'm looking forward to it, as I got to play a flight director in one sequence - my only claim to film "fame"!

I've quietly watched the progress on this thing for years with some amusement. The guy producing it appears to be talented, genuine, and enthusiastic. But every few months or so he slips into a very public depression, moaning about the latest setback he has suffered, or how poor he is, or whatever. This requires people to reassure him and tell him how valued he is and to rebuild his ego. It's a little silly. I hope he finishes it, but I think he has a lot of issues to deal with first.

This is Teaser V for the independent in-development science fiction faux-documentary feature movie "Man Conquers Space".

The teaser opens with Aristarkhos of Samos coming to the realisation that the long-held geo-centric view of the universe is wrong, that the Earth is merely a satellite of the Sun, and that mankind is not the centre of the universe. His views would be discounted at the time, and history would have to wait until the 16th century for the geocentric view to be disproven once again by Copernicus.

Fast forward to the middle of the 20th century, and we meet individuals whose lives are touched by voyaging off-world.

Someday this film will emerge. It could be breathtaking.

When I visited David in February, he showed a lot of footage to my wife and I. I cannot speak highly enough of the material I was privy to watch.
