Apollo 11 2019 Story:
CNN Films approached director Todd Douglas Miller in 2016 to make a film for the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing. At the time, Miller was just completing The Last Steps, a documentary about Apollo 17. Miller’s conception of the film was centered on a direct cinema approach; the final film contains no voice-over narration or interviews beyond what was available in the contemporary source material, similar to the 2010 documentary Senna.
In May 2017, cooperation between Miller’s production team, NASA, and the National Archives and Records Administration resulted in the discovery of unreleased 70 mm footage from the launch and recovery of Apollo 11. The large-format footage includes scenes from Launch Complex 39, spectators present for the launch, the launch of the Saturn V rocket, the recovery of astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and Michael Collins and the Apollo 11 command module, and post-mission efforts aboard the USS Hornet. The documentary included this footage alongside conventional footage from 35 and 16 mm film, still photography, and closed-circuit television footage.
Miller’s team used the facilities of Final Frame, a post-production firm in New York City, to make high-resolution digital scans of all available footage. Specialized climate-controlled vans were used to safely transport the archival material to and from the National Archives in Washington, DC. The production team cataloged over 11,000 hours of audio recordings and hundreds of hours of video. Among the audio recordings were 30-track tapes of voice recordings at every Mission Control station. Ben Feist, a Canadian software engineer, wrote software to improve the fidelity of the newly available audio. British archivist and film editor Stephen Slater, who had synchronized audio recordings with 16 mm Mission Control footage in earlier projects, performed the task of synchronizing the audio and film. The production team was able to identify “Mother Country”, a song by folk musician John Stewart, in lunar module voice recordings. The song was subsequently featured in the film.
