In a few years, we could have easy access to films shot and produced in space, but also live streams, music created in weightlessness, all thanks to a production studio installed in orbit. A project developed by one of the production companies of Tom Cruise’s space film project.
Space Entertainment Enterprise’s Crazy Project
Fasten your seat belts and keep your eyes open. The information that follows speaks indeed of a small revolution. While we are impatiently awaiting the departure of Tom Cruise for the stars, as part of an unprecedented and joint operation between Universal, NASA and SpaceX, we learn today that a project to install a studio of production in space is in full development, with a first “stone” which would be laid in 2024.
It is the newly created production company Space Entertainment Enterprise, also associated with the Tom Cruise project, which intends to open this studio. This would obviously be the first of its kind, orbiting the earth.
A production studio attached to an independent space station
The SEE production company. is a society for the moment quite earthy and classic. Its ultimate goal is to produce content created in space, but you still have to go there. Which is not at all in his skills. That is why the task of building this famous production space studio falls to the company Axiom Space. This is a company specializing in aeronautics and private spaceflight, a partner in particular of Space X and NASA.
In 2020, Axiom Space obtained authorization to attach new modules to the ISS. Modules that are intended to accommodate commercial activities. Four modules are thus planned for the moment, which once all secured will separate from the ISS to form the basis of an independent station in 2028, the Axiom Station.
Regarding the project of the module dedicated to the production of artistic content, and more generally of everything contained in the term “entertainment”, it is designed to be operational from 2024.
SEE’s Director of Operations, Richard Johnston, summarized the ambition of the project as follows:
From Jules Verne to Star Trek, sci-fi entertainment has inspired millions of people around the world and made them dream of what the future would bring. Creating a next-generation place in space for creation and entertainment opens endless doors to creating incredible new content and making those dreams come true.
