Moonraker ’78

In 1978, after graduating from high school, Stuart Basinger decided to make an epic 8mm silent film version of Ian Fleming’s MOONRAKER. At the time it was the only novel that had yet to be made into a film. Working on a shoe-string budget, Stuart wrote up an outline of a potential shooting script. Since the film was going to be shot without sound (8mm film cameras were usually silent), there was no need to write dialogue. To help keep the production cost down, any elaborate sets or models were financially out of the question, but through the magic of filmmaking, he was going to learn how to make the impossible possible.
