Shoot the Moon: A documentary feature film

A documentary about building the biggest thing ever. Coming in 2015 with the help of the Kickstarter community.

Twelve men have set foot on the moon, and getting them there cost $25.4 billion dollars. The last moonwalk ended more than 40 years ago. Two men, Michael and David, are dedicating their lives to creating the next moonshoot for humanity, and they think they can give us permanent access to the moon for less than a billion dollars.

We’re filming their journey to build an elevator to space.

Our Kickstarter campaign is live! Funding through October 23rd.
