The National Space Society (NSS) has just launched a campaign on the popular Kickstarter internet platform for the creation of a cutting-edge film about the ways in which all of humanity benefits from the expansion of space exploration and development. This ground-breaking education initiative, entitled “Our Future in Space” is designed to bring NSS’s vision of human beings living and working in space to a broader audience.
The campaign can be accessed at our Kickstarter web page. It not only provides an opportunity to help fund and support the film’s development, but also to use the completed video to help promote the Society’s mission.
“We’re very excited to be undertaking this video project,” noted Paul E. Damphousse, NSS Executive Director. “It’s a chance to create media that accurately and compellingly conveys why the space industry is so important for the U.S. and the world.”
NSS has gathered a stellar team of creative experts to bring the video to life, including Oscar-nominated producer Jeffrey Marvin. Members of the team have worked with some of the biggest stars in film and TV in both the U.S. and Europe, and have a history of space-themed movie creation.
At a time when so many are uncertain about our space future, “Our Future in Space” will show how the work of NASA and private industry can lead to a more prosperous future for the United States and the world. Drawing from decades of research and the latest film-making technology, the final product will present a compelling and motivating glimpse of what should be.
