Apple this week shared a new video containing clips and testimonials from the team behind the show. “For All Mankind”, one of the original productions of Apple TV +. The teaser was released in light of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, the American space mission that first brought Moon man.
The series starring Joel Kinnaman, Michael Dorman, Wrenn Schmidt, Sarah Shantel VanSanten, Sarah Jones and Jodi Balfour, produced by Maril Davis film giants Matt Wolpert, Ben Nedivi and Ronald D. Moore.
In the video, the team talks about the historical significance of the Apollo mission and the attempts of authenticity of the series. Among them, Moore tells us that the US space program “captured the imagination of the world” as mission events unfolded in 1969.
There is something special about putting people on spacecraft and traveling far away. It is an idea of this optimistic future in which we not only travel through space, but also something good for all humanity.
As explained in the trailer released at WWDC19, at the beginning of last month, the series tells a fictional story in which the space race between the United States and the former Soviet Union (USSR) never ended. In production, the Soviets were the first to land on the moon, prompting the Americans to increase their competition.
In addition to the teaser, Moore and other program creators shared even more details about the production. In a press conference on production for ColliderMoore said the design of the series involved a wish from him and Apple TV + (and former Sony) co-chair Zack Van Amburg.
He (Van Amburg) and I talked briefly about doing a series about NASA in the 1970s around the Skylab era many years ago, and it never got off the ground so we didn't talk about it much.
J to Inverse, the director said that Apollo 11 was the “catalyst that made him interested in science fiction” and also said that the plans for the series came out of the paper when Apple opened the project, at which time the story really started. develop.
I told Zack that the most exciting thing for me was to do the space program that I felt we were promised and could never execute. And that's how the journey to the alternate version of (space race) history was born. That's why at Apple, it came out of our personal relationship.
In an interview for Syfy, the series' technical consultants, Garrett Reisman and Gerry Griffin, said they wanted to make production “as accurate as possible” even when it became technically unviable.
Obtaining cathode ray tube displays, for example, was a nightmare that caused the production team to cheat using flat-screen TVs and placing a curved piece of glass to simulate old screens. The NASA logo was another difficulty. () That's because, as the trio explained, NASA has a policy of just supporting and allowing the use of badges if the media portrays the events of the space program exactly as they happened. Not really a possibility for a series about an alternative story.
Although the first season of the series has not yet been released, like the Apple TV + itself, Moore bit his teeth and said a possible second season is already under discussion.
What about, excited?
