Richard Linklater will direct a hybirid of hand-drawn and CGI animation Apollo 10 1/2 animation feature for Netflix.

ichard Linklater is not new to animation. His Waking Life (2001) and A Scanner Darkly (2006) used rotoscope and philosophy in interchangeable ways - and didn't pass unnoticed.

We now learn (via Indiewire) that his new animation feature Apollo 10 1/2”  involves "a more ambitious hybrid of hand-drawn and CG animation along with live action".

The movie, directed and written by Linklater, is set against the backdrop of the 1969 Apollo mission to the moon, and is inspired by the director's childhood in Houston.

Apollo 10 ½: A Space Age Adventure is told from two interwoven perspectives, capturing the astronaut and mission control view of the triumphant moment, and the lesser-seen bottom up perspective of what it was like from an excited kid’s perspective, living near NASA but mostly watching it on TV like hundreds of millions of others.

It struck me years ago that this was my film to make, from both a chronological and proximity level – I was there, going into 3rd grade. Our unique animation style allows both the conjuring of a world long gone, and the flowing, playful expression of memory and imagination. It’s been a fun, creative journey to incorporate things like 3D graphics into a live action shoot to help bring this story to life - Richard Linklater.

The live-action component has already been shot, and animation will now completed at The live-action shoot wrapped in March in Austin, and the animation will be completed at  Austin (Minnow Mountain)  and the Netherlands (Submarine)

The voice cast includes Jack Black and Zachary Levi, Glen Powell, Josh Wiggins, Milo Coy, Lee Eddy, Bill Wise, Natalie L’Amoreaux, Jessica Brynn Cohen, Sam Chipman, and Danielle Guilbot.
