5.0 out of 5 stars AN AMAZING JOURNEY...
I've been an admirer of Steve Pyke's photography for a while and thought that this would be a great chance to see him at work. This is a very well put together film, showing not only how a photographer works with his subjects and creates his art, but also how he probes their minds and thoughts.

3.0 out of 5 stars Watched once !.
I love space and science documentaries, but I have to say this did not really hold my attention. The soundtrack by TheThe does help, and as an idea for a film, it is marvellous, but the audio is poor. Such an epic idea, travelling across the US, convincing Apollo crew members/engineers, to talk and pose for pictures. Good for a historical perspective on the missions.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN AMAZING JOURNEY..., 1 Mar 2013
This review is from: Steve Pyke's Moonbug: Apollo Astronauts and Their Journeys in Space and to the Moon [DVD] (DVD)
I've been an admirer of Steve Pyke's photography for a while and thought that this would be a great chance to see him at work. This is a very well put together film, showing not only how a photographer works with his subjects and creates his art, but also how he probes their minds and thoughts. Listening to the astronauts relive their intimate and personal accounts of their pioneering travel, Pyke takes them from the comfort of their own homes back into deepest, darkest space. It's easy to understand how their perception of the universe is changed by their experiences and how they gained a new view of our tiny planet and its place in the grand scheme of things from high above! This is a compelling watch for both fans of space and photography - I would highly recommend it. (Not sure how or why the previous reviewer only gave it 2 stars!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring stuff, 7 Mar 2013
This review is from: Steve Pyke's Moonbug: Apollo Astronauts and Their Journeys in Space and to the Moon [DVD] (DVD)
Really enjoyed this film - I've been a fan of Pyke's work since reading philosophy at university and coming across his portraits of philosophers. It's fantastic to see how those images are made and how those big projects come together, I loved Laura Wilson's book "Avedon at work in the American West" for similar reasons. Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just curious, 24 Feb 2013

This review is from: Steve Pyke's Moonbug: Apollo Astronauts and Their Journeys in Space and to the Moon [DVD] (DVD)
The video shows an account on the photographer's journey in the States, taking pictures of the astronauts and some of the people most involved in Mercury, Geminy and Apollo missions. Just curious.
