“Looking Back to Earth” is an animation project we made for the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing in 2019. I did the 3D animations and the texture paintings, Eugen Neacsu was responsible for the general treatment and the special effects and Octavian Horvath did the sound design. The text is an excerpt of the speech of Neil Armstrong at the Starmus Festival 2011 in Tenerife – As this was one of his last public appearances, this speech is often understood as Neil Armstrong’s legacy to humankind. Please only watch this video if you have about 15 quiet minutes ….enjoy!
