We are Shoot The Moon, a documentary about the Lunar Space Elevator, and LiftPort, the company actually building it! Ask Us Anything!
We’ve been following LiftPort all summer as they push to build an experimental robot that will climb a tether more than 24,000 feet into the sky.
It’s all being shot for a feature-length documentary called Shoot The Moon. We’re also planning on shooting special effects sequences depicting a lunar elevator in action using the techniques of vintage sci-fi from the 70s and 80s. (Think model miniatures like Star Wars.) We’re crowdfunding this portion of the film, and we’ll post a link pending mod approval!
Ask us anything! We have Michael Laine, the president of LiftPort here, to answer any questions about the space elevator, and the film team here to answer any questions about the film including director Benjamin Ahr Harrison, Exec Producer Mahad Ibrahim, & Producers Alexis Santos & Idil Ibrahim.
