My "First Feature"
After more than a year and a half of preparation, it's official: BECOMING ASTRONAUT, my first feature-length documentary, follows the new astronauts of the European Space Agency over several years of their demanding basic training. You can find the VARIETY article here.
Produced by Franziska Sonder of Ensemble Film and set to be directed by Roman Hodel, who made a splash with his 2020 short documentary “The Game,” “Becoming an Astronaut” will follow the astronauts, chosen by ESA after an exhaustive selection processes that included more than 22,500 applicants, over a four-year “nerve-wracking odyssey” to see who will be first to travel to space. Ensemble Film has gained unprecedented access to ESA for the project.
