Moon Hoax Not: Photography-based Argument That NASA Couldn’t Have Faked It

Amsterdam-based writer / director S G Collins is not sure if men really did go to the Moon in 1969. But he’s pretty sure they couldn't have faked it.

The Apollo 11 Space Mission is ubiquitously-known as the mission that successfully sent the man to the Moon for the first time. It has gone down in history books as one of man’s crowning moments, with Neil Armstrong’s famous words forever immortalized.

But like all great things, this event has its share of detractors, commonly in the form of conspiracy theories. In fact, one of the most well-known theories is that the landing on the Moon never happened, and the whole thing was just a charade done inside a movie studio.

This has been a long standing debate, with experts and “experts” throwing evidence back in forth, and most recently, it has come in the form of this video by writer / director S G Collins.

His explanation, peppered with a heavy dose of dry wit and amusing interludes, is based on his hands-on experience and knowledge in the area of photography and videography, and is compelling enough to convince non-believers that the landing on the moon was not really a documentary directed by Stanley Kubrick.

Watch the video below and decide for yourself!

So, what do you guys think? Let’s discuss below!

    Lots of technical yet interesting analogue movie-making terms that could make one scratch his or her head, but I think this guy succeeded in convincing me that they couldn't have faked it. It was just too complicated and difficult that the chances of successfully faking it are slim!

    Haha, I really enjoyed this video! His argument is very interesting and unconventional. I'm an aerospace engineering student though, so I don't need any convincing that we made it to the moon...now on to Mars!

    Very convincing and perceptive. He's right that there are far more important things we need to know the truth about going on today. Sure would like to sit down with him and just talk.
