Synopsis

The largest production ever filmed in space, Space Explorers: The ISS Experience is an epic, immersive series that invites you to join astronauts on their life-changing missions aboard the International Space Station. In spring 2021, Felix & Paul Studios sent the first-ever cinematic virtual reality camera designed to operate in the vacuum of space to the station. In the series’ special feature Spacewalkers, you can experience history as you immerse yourself in the world’s first-ever spacewalk captured in cinematic virtual reality outside the International Space Station. Viewers can experience the Overview Effect, the visceral experience of the beauty, the fragility, the profound sense of unity, and the desire of protection and preservation that watching the Earth as a whole generates.

Directors’ Statement

Our mission since day one was to enable billions of people to experience what it is like to float in space and witness Planet Earth from above and we are pleased that this one-time dream has now become a reality. Less than 250 astronauts have ever conducted an extravehicular activity (EVA) – known as a ‘spacewalk’ – and now for the first time audiences can experience what it is like to float in space as if they were astronauts themselves. Spacewalkers is the culmination of close to three years of preparation. We are excited, honoured and truly humbled to have had the opportunity to film in the most challenging environment known to humankind and to now share it with the world.
