New teaser from Man Conquers Space online!

There's a space movie which is long awaited by lots of people around the world. No, not Star Wars, it's something much closer to home. As a fan of "what-if" stories I am really looking forward to see the end product of this tour de force by film maker David Sander from Australia. This project already has taken him I think ten years. It's an independent production, Sander produces, writes, directs and takes care of the SFX.
His documentary style film tells the story of the US going to space more than 10 years before they actually did, making much bolder steps than they actually did and shows people going to - and landing on - Mars before Kennedy's decade was out. It shows interviews with (fictitious) astronauts and grainy footage of Von Braun's Saturn Shuttle lifting off from pad 39 in Florida. Wonderful stuff. Here's the new trailer, the first in four years. it shows a vision of a world around 1969 in which people have been to Mars, painted in stupendously vivid colours and images. I really hope this film will come to life real soon.
Since the YT video was made private (why?) You can watch the teaser on Vimeo. I just cannot seem to embed that here...

PS. I'll place an update on Gemini soon. I've had a heavy head cold the past few days...

Edit July 18th 2015: It appears David Sander took everything offline. I really hope he himself is doing well. It is however a huge pity that this project now had vanished...
