Unearthing Apollo 11 in Large Format: An Interview with Director Todd Douglas Miller

Unearthing Apollo 11 in Large Format: An Interview with Director Todd Douglas Miller

Director-Editor Todd Douglas Miller creates more than just another space documentary with his film Apollo 11. He has helped expand the horizons of what we thought we knew about one of humankind's signature achievements by unearthing nearly 300 reels of previously unseen large-format film, up to 65 and 70mm, digitized with a first-of-its-kind 8K scanner, along with 11,000 hours of previously unheard audio recordings to provide previously only-imagined perspectives on our first mission to the moon. Creative COW's Courtney Lewis reveals how he put it all together with NASA, the National Archives, post house Final Frame, and tools from Adobe.
