This time we took our Scan Truck Spaceship all the way to the moon with Apple TV’s brand new series “For All Mankind”. This alternative-history series explores “What if Soviet Union succeeded in the first manned Moon landing and space race never ended”. Recreating the surface of the Moon presented an interesting challenge for the visual effects team. LIDAR scanning and lots of photogrammetry was needed to provide set extensions and digital doubles. Our mobile 3D scanning studio was a perfect fit on the Sony Pictures Studios lot. We landed next to the stage and worked closely with Method Studios on providing 3D scans of Joel Kinnaman, Michael Dorman, Jodi Balfour as well as other cast members and even Soviet and US space suits.
