If you have seen the movie then you must know that incredible detail that was put into the creation of director Damien Chazelle’s film First Man. He brought the story of NASA’s mission to the moon to the big screen and the told the story in incredible detail.
The creative team wants to make sure that they caught all the necessary details of everything from that era and that included the recreation of the astronaut’s space suits. I’ve to say the spacesuits looks cool and seems very legit and time appropriate.
In the most recent episode of Tested, Adam Savage meets with spacesuit replica maker Ryan Nagata, and they show off many of his spacesuits and spacesuit parts that he created just for the movie.
Adam and Ryan talk about his build of the X15 suit seen in the film, the technical accuracy achieved by the costume department, and what he learned from making pieces to be filmed for camera.
If you haven’t seen the movie yet, I recommend you should go an watch it in the cinema for full theatrical immersion.
