About the design
on January 21, 2007
This is based off one of the most recognizable images in film history, a scene from George Melies' 105 year old film called Le Voyage dans la Lune (A Trip to the Moon), in which crazy astronomers shoot a rocket out of a cannon into the moon's eye, and explore it's surface. You can watch it on youtube if you like.
I felt such a strong iconic image as the moon (with albeit a modern) rocket in it's eye appropriate for a film festival tshirt that celebrates film and film making, as George Melies pioneered many moviemaking techniques, and created the first science-fiction film ever.
