Searching for Skylab - Kickstarter (mod approved)
« on: March 13, 2018, 09:47:42 PM »
Hi everyone,

Searching for Skylab has entered high gear, and in order to make it over the finish line, we are looking at getting your help. It is the first feature-length documentary film about the US' first space station. Many of you love space history, and Skylab is a somewhat forgotten part of it. Your support will go to preserving Skylab's history in the way of this film The archival material (which looks like it was shot yesterday it is so clear) will cost us to be transferred. We also need to market the film as we are independent and need to get our voice heard.

Your support is greatly appreciated and will be put to good use!

Sincerely,
Dwight

I've pledged as well. Good luck, Dwight! These are important stories that need to be told.
It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth.
I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth.
I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.

I am humbled by the generous support everyone has shown for this project. Thank you so much! We have some fantastic material for the film, and the 16mm footage sparkles! We have Paul Weitz's last ever interview on there, and that one nearly never happened. Same with Bruce McCandless (although it was not his last interview, but rather the last time he spoke of the AMRV). If you are in a position to head over to Spacefest in July, please do. I look forward to seeing you there!

I am very happy to report that Searching for Skylab has been completed as of 16 June, 2018. It could not have happened without the generous support of our Kickstarter patrons. The finished product looks amazing. I can without hesitation state that some footage has rarely been seen by the public before! I do not use such terms lightly, and we went to great lengths to get footage that is not simply a rehash of Skylab: The First 40 Days. It is scheduled to be screened at Spacefest in 2 weeks time (July 5, 2018).
