The props were all flying around and releasing zero gravity wasn’t easy, but they did. It was a challenge to film everything in twelve days, but with Velcro as their best friend, they got the shots needed for the movie’Vesuvius (Challenge) can shoot. The film is about a surgeon who travels to the International Space Station to work on an astronaut.

“Amazingly comfortable”

Actress Yulia Peresild, 37, and director Klim Shpenko, 38, landed safely on Earth’s crust on Sunday after spending 12 days on the International Space Station. This makes them the first camera crew to travel to space to shoot a movie, which frustrated the United States, which wanted to achieve this feat with actor Tom Cruise. They have 30 hours of footage, 25-35 minutes of which will be shown in “Vizov”.

Peresild now says she has found the stay on the International Space Station surprisingly comfortable. The temperature was nice, and she could sleep well. “It’s great for the women out there. You never suffer from ‘bed hair.’ You always look perfect.” After that, she was disappointed that she was not able to enjoy the private views much due to the tight schedule they had to stick to. “We realized the day before we had to go back that we didn’t take the time to look out the windows.”

talent

They have had a lot of help from the “real” astronauts from the International Space Station, who will also appear in the film and contribute to the “organic dialogues”. Shpenko laughs: “They found out that they had an acting talent.” “I showed them the light.” And it looks like the crew was also helpful working behind the scenes. For example, sometimes they raised Shipenko’s feet during filming, so as not to bump into everything.

cinematic discovery

The director says the ISS experience taught him new ways to make films. “Some of the scenes that I’ve been imagining on Earth a certain way produced a completely different result there. People can look at their faces in space, but with one person looking with their head up and the other hanging horizontally above them, for example. The camera can also be positioned in completely different places.” This completely transforms your consciousness. For me it was a cinematic discovery.”

to the moon?

Maybe a sequel on the moon? “We’re ready for that,” Shipenko says excitedly. “We think movies about space should really be shot in space. Why not? Why only in the studio? If it’s about the moon, let’s go to the moon. If Mars is Mars, let’s go to Mars!”

Adapt

They say that Peresild and Shipenko now have to basically adapt to life on Earth. They have a particular difficulty with gravity. “We have to learn to walk again,” Peresild said.

It’s the 1,000th in the “first times” row for the Russians in the so-called space race with America. They launched the first satellite, Sputnik, and sent the first animal (the dog Laika), the first man (Gagarin), and the first woman (Tereshkova) into space.
