APOLLO 10 ½ is an innovative hybrid of live-action and a combination of hand-drawn and computer-animated imagery. Directed and written by Richard Linklater, the film is set against the backdrop of the 1969 Apollo mission to the moon, and is inspired by Linklater’s childhood in Houston, TX. The film will debut on Netflix in 2022. Linklater used a similar approach in his 2001 movie ‘Waking Life’, which was shot using digital video of live actors and then rotoscoped with artists.
