When man landed on the moon in 1969, it was a milestone in the history of humankind. Around 530 million people watched the Apollo 11 moon landing live. During the trip to the moon, while on the surface, and when heading home, many photographs were created. Made using modified Hasselblad 500EL cameras, those shots result in some very high resolution images.
Fast forward to now and motion designer Christian Stangl along with his brother, composer Wolfgang Stangl, have created a fantastic short film documenting the event. What’s really amazing, though, is that the entire film is made from still photographs. Taken from NASA’s Project Apollo Archive, Christian used stitching and stop motion techniques to bring them to life.
