"When We Were Apollo" is a feature-length documentary exploring the enduring impact of the Apollo Space Program through the eyes of several extraordinary behind-the-scenes men and women who helped put a man on the moon.
The film will premiere in the spring of 2019, in time for the 50th Anniversary of the first moon landing.
July 20, 1969, 10:30 EDT: With one small step, humanity slips the heavenly bonds of earth and first sets foot upon the moon. But, for the 400,000 men and women of Project Apollo, the first moon landing represents the culmination of a decade-long effort of such awesome scope and scale, it would forever change the American fabric.
Fifty years later, we explore the legacy of the Apollo Space Program through the untold stories of some of its most inspiring behind-the-scenes heroes – crafting an intimate and approachable portrait of Apollo, its evolution and its profound and lasting impact as the largest operation in peacetime the world has ever known. Engaging with several future explorers of tomorrow, our Apollo-era figures then offer their hard-earned experience, wisdom and lessons as inspiration for humanity's next giant leaps.
Your support will allow us to capture inspiring, never-before-heard stories of several of Apollo's everyday heroes! The goal of our campaign is to raise funds for the production (filming) stage of When We Were Apollo, which will begin in early 2018.
