Russians shooting a movie in space and Tom Cruise preparing to shoot his own movie in space with director Doug Liman, Now the movie business is going to space and we will be seeing some amazing and insane things being produced in space.
Space Entertainment Enterprise has revealed that they will be co-producing Cruise’s space film project, and they offer to build an arena production studio in space.
This is an ambitious project that isn’t going to be easy. The construction alone is insane and it would also be very expensive. Then there’s the whole aspect of launching actors, directors, and crew members up there to shoot their projects, which won’t be affordable for some studios.
SEE-1 is hoping that the cool factor outweighs all of the limitations. Axiom Space will handle construction as they helped create the commercial elements of the International Space Station. For the first four years of its existence, the studio will be connected to the ISS. The plan is then to break off from ISS and evolve into its own structure by 2028.
SEE founders Elena and Dmitry Lesnevsky are currently trying to raise the money to make this happen. They said in a statement:
“SEE-1 is an incredible opportunity for humanity to move into a different realm and start an exciting new chapter in space. It will provide a unique, and accessible home for boundless entertainment possibilities in a venue packed with innovative infrastructure which will unleash a new world of creativity. With worldwide leader Axiom Space building this cutting-edge, revolutionary facility, SEE-1 will provide not only the first, but also the supreme quality space structure enabling the expansion of the two trillion-dollar global entertainment industry into low-Earth orbit.”
Michael Suﬀredini, president/CEO of Axiom Space added:
“Axiom Station, the world’s first commercial space station, is designed as the foundational infrastructure enabling a diverse economy in orbit. Adding a dedicated entertainment venue to Axiom Station’s commercial capabilities in the form of SEE-1 will expand the station’s utility as a platform for a global user base and highlight the range of opportunities the new space economy offers.”
Axiom chief engineer Dr. Michael Baine claimed went on to say:
“SEE-1 will showcase and leverage the space environment in an unprecedented way. The inflatable module design provides for around six meters diameter of unobstructed pressurized volume, which can be adapted to a range of activities — including an onboard state-of-the-art media production capability that will capture and convey the experience of weightlessness with breathtaking impact.”
