LCC’s practice-based PhD student Carl Grinter presents his film Thesis that reconstructs and reinterprets the Apollo 11 lunar mission across 6 chapters, all of which happen in real time. Using original scientific footage and audio recorded by the astronauts and mission control with the flight directors whilst in progress. On its most immediate level the film is about exploration of the unknown when we set out on a journey to somewhere completely different from our previous experiences of the world.

Carl Grinter is an animation, visual effects and immersive media director, producer and supervisor working in the London film network. He started Three Wise Monkeys as an animation, visual design and interactive development company nearly four years ago to put into practice his passion for collaboration, creativity, research, new knowledge and peak experiences. Previous to Three Wise Monkeys, Carl worked for 11 years as the Director of Production/Commercial Director for Rushes Post-production London producing and post producing visual effects and animation across feature films, TV programming, digital content and commercials.
