Forty-five years ago, on July 20 1969, Neil Armstrong spoke his iconic words: “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” as he took his first step on the surface of the moon. He and Buzz Aldrin became the first men to walk on the moon on that fateful day, and as the world celebrates the 45th anniversary of this momentous occasion, creative minds are at commemorating the day man stepped outside his home planet.
One such author is artist and illustrator Nick Acosta, who has made a montage video of some of the best footage taken on the mission and edited it with sprawling orchestral pieces and the creepy, atmospheric score from “2001: A Space Oddysey” to create a Kubrickian recounting of the lunar landing.
In his short description of the film, Costa says: “Kubrick actually commissioned an original musical score to accompany the space travel scenes. He ended up rejecting those tracks and decided to use classical music from the 19th century. The result gives the film a timeless aspect that mid 60’s musical scoring couldn’t. Now at the 45th anniversary of mankind’s last great Space Odyssey, the Apollo 11 moon landing, I have created this short film using NASA’s own high def engineering footage and the astronaut's home movies. The premise, what if Stanley Kubrick had directed the moon landing?”
Let’s see how that turned out.
