Well, it all started after a smash hit film about the first moon landing, where we put a really bright light up as high as we could and found out it was a bit dark on set for the cameras, especially since we were filming at a higher framerate to make the low gravity thing believable, and after it turned out so well I thought "hey, why light sets at all? what if we just used candles?"
It was just as hard to focus the f0.7 lenses (we asked zeiss for a few in case we ran into too many exposure issues "on the moon" and still had one laying around - shit man, we had that shoot scheduled with a promo rocket launch and had to nail it LIVE with only a short rehearsal) and keep everything from turning into a blur especially since it was softer and darker than "earthlight" turned out to be, but we pulled it off with a lot of pushing in development. I won a few awards, but it wasn't anywhere near the success of my moon flick. People liked it so much some of them think it actually happened, and everyone keeps forgetting the candlelight film. Even I forgot the candelight film. What was it called? Fuck if I know. I think it was overrated. I like my other film way better
it was called Apollo 11.
