The mission of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Artemis program is to send humans to the Moon in 2025. The last manned mission to the Moon was in 1972 with Apollo 17. Artemis I is an uncrewed mission to to test the equipment.
This is a historic moment for space exploration, according to the creative director of the Montreal company, Félix Lajeunesse.
The images of astronaut Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the Moon in 1969 made history. With his project, the Felix & Paul studios will be able to document space history with much more advanced technologies than those that produced the famous black and white images of 1969, as Mr. Lajeunesse explains in an interview.
Today, we are addressing a new generation through new technologies. To be able to do it in a completely immersive way, to be able to transcend the screen and bring the spectators to live the experience as if it were there, we find that it is an important evolution.he said.
The Felix & Paul studios are also preparing other projects related to the Artemis mission.
