Imaging Among the Stars:
The Moon, Mars, Deep Space, and Home Again 

A full-day program dedicated to bringing advanced imaging to space so that amazing images can be sent to viewers back home on Earth.

Techniques for restoring and modernizing films of historic space missions and creating realistic celestial environments for modern cinema will be covered in sessions featuring:

  • Todd Douglas Miller, the filmmaker behind the critically acclaimed “Apollo 11” moon landing documentary.

  • Astronaut Col. Terry Virts, former commander on the ISS and director of “One More Orbit,” a documentary about how he broke the speed record for circumnavigating the globe.
  • NASA’s Rodney Grubbs and Dylan Mathis, who are involved in deep space imaging for Project Artemis, the next U.S. moon landing mission.
  • Josh Winstead of AWS, an expert on the transmission and distribution of live images from the ISS to Earth.
  • Visual effects artists James Schwalm and Ian Hunter, whose innovative techniques gave a unique photorealistic look to the Academy Award-winning biopic “First Man” (2017).
