and a unique artist or is it 2 artists one person the ambidextrous talents of riaa say no. but we begin today with a new documentary about the moon landing 50 years ago i can still remember vividly remember as a young boy how the whole world seemed to stop we watched in amazement as we saw live pictures being directly from the moon into our living rooms and the incredible technological achievement at the time i also remember feeling a sense of global humanity that we as a planet where achieving great things and taking great strides well anyway here's a taste of apollo 11. this is the winner mission like you've never seen it before the documentary apollo 11 turns us into witnesses of history. like you know what you feel as far as responsibility representing

mankind on this trip the enormity of this that something that only yesterday will be able to. follow 11 is very simply been given the mission of carrying men to the moon landing that and bringing them safely back. like this is a movie 50 years in the making all the footage is original the voices are original no new shots no narration apollo 11 gives audiences a front row seat at the 1st manned moon landing as it really happened. the team of filmmakers used brand new technology to restore nasa footage from 1969 . we were all dumb struck immediately at how beautiful the cinematography was the detail in the footage that we were seen was
11:47 pm
something i just had never seen before there was 3 or 4 of us in there over just speechless. minutes and then we recreated the entire mission and 9 days so we have a timeline where you can look and see over $100.00 tracks of audio and that took the better half of a year just to compile that we were working with 18000 hours of uncatalogued audio 11000 hours of which was from apollo 11 the cabinet and the net the fish the way that what it is there that we have hundreds of rails of footage newly rediscovered footage reveals a candid look at the men who risked their lives you have to kind of would hold down one of the key moments what were the moments of humanity that happened what were the things that stood out what really got me was. the emotion on their faces you could see the weight of what they were about to do. in a way that i'd never seen it before and that's when i knew that we had something millions of people watched the moon landing 50 years ago now millions who weren't

yet born will see it almost as if they were there. almost as if they were the david leavitt's. i 60 great footage i mean it doesn't look as though it was filmed yesterday i practically had to lift my job back off the floor robyn it looks so new and you know it looks so different to the images that we know from the lunar mission the ones that have burnt their way onto our brain i mean these are the images that inspired people 50 years ago when you see them now they feel like they could have been a 1000000 years ago but this rediscovered footage now and the way that they've restored it just changes everything you're looking at neil armstrong like you could be looking at your neighbor almost and it just makes us realize that this is actually what the world looks like and the lunar mission looks like for the people who were there back in 1969 so where did they find this incredible footage so the director todd douglas miller was in touch with the u.s.
11:49 pm
national archive about this and one day he got an e-mail from them that they'd uncovered a whole trove of leftover movie footage from project back in the 1960 s. nasa had a movie deal with m.g.m. that fell through but there was all this footage from it all this leftover footage shot by a great film team pristinely preserved now but it was in a very special format that no one had used in 50 years so they had to develop a whole new technology to scan this footage and just imagine how scary it was you've got this invaluable technology you're putting it through a brand new prototype of a scanner that no one's ever used before i don't think it was as had a harrowing as manning a mission to the moon but i think it was pretty. scary moments unfortunately it all worked out we've got this movie is just 11 thing the critics say about the movie though is the they don't talk about the political aspects of the race to the right this was of course the the summit of this chapter between the soviet union and the

11:53 pm
. what was fantasy for artists was reality for the astronauts of the apollo mission it's charlie duke was the 10 man on the moon. he became known for his lunar olympics and attempts to jump as high as possible which nearly killed him but he learned from the experience don't ever do anything to the space you had practiced all over the me apollo was. an adventure in a technical mission that i had a job to do and i was focused on my just being on the moon you just fall in love with it if you train in case they get more come back i would like to live on the moon forever. but certainly state would have been great they said. the overwhelming beauty of space it takes scientists and astronauts to study at an artist to make it accessible for the rest of us starman is

well when i was working with only one there i got really bored because it was i yeah it's wasn't ready for me so from both ends is less boring. for me. my brain is busy so i like that. she had a breakthrough in 2011 age 17 she made a portrait of teen heartthrob and pop singer justin bieber and then put it on the internet back then she was still only using one hand. the menservants of just in the verse contacted me and asked me if i wanted to give my drawing to him. so i met him in 11 yeah he was really amazed by the drawing and he couldn't believe. it so it is all the really big compliment coming
11:56 pm
from him. that inspired her to create many more portraits of celebrities like johnny depp julie national lead and lady gaga. and earlier this year she started using both hands to sketch different portraits simultaneously like these pictures of taylor swift and selena gomez. where i started drawing i always study the part that i'm going to draw and then i remember that so even when i don't look at the picture i can still draw it. only about one percent of people in the world are lucky enough to have the ability to use the right and left hand equally well it's an innate skill known as ambidexterity. we simply while she was drawing 2 different portraits at the same time her brain activity was monitored and it was discovered that her left and right brain hemispheres communicate 3 times more efficiently than those of other people
