Between 1969 and 1972 the human race accomplished arguably the single greatest technological achievement in history, setting foot on another celestial body. What better way to honor the NASA Apollo Program than with a gorgeous video created entirely from still images from the various missions to the moon.
That’s exactly what a skilled photographer did earlier this week, creating the video above from scans of all the original unprocessed images taken by the crews of the Apollo 10 to 17 space missions. The elements that make up each image were separated with Adobe Photoshop and then animated within After Effects to create movement and parallax between the layers in the image. Effects and textures have been added to create a sense of action and transition between the scenes.
