ABOUT THIS EPISODE
After Todd Douglas Miller made a short film about Apollo 17, he figured he was done with outer space. Then he got an email from an employee at the National Archives who had found some old film reels labeled: Apollo 11. Some of the found footage was shot in glorious 70 millimeter. Nearly 50 years after man first walked on the moon, Miller has transformed those reels into his new movie ‘Apollo 11.’ He tells KCRW’s Matt Holzman about the enormously difficult task of syncing old audio with the old footage and describes what it was like to show Neil Armstrong’s sons images of their father that they’d never seen before. Plus, we talk to entertainment attorney Jonathan Handel about the brewing confrontation between the Writers Guild and the talent agencies.
