FIRST MAN LIFTS OFF by Lisa R. Reisman C onspiracy theories be damned. It takes a village and then some to pull off geing a rocket to the moon, even a fake one. Based on the book of the same title by James R. Hansen, First Man is the story of Neil Armstrong, the first man to step foot on the moon. Location manager Kyle Hinshaw, LMGI took on the challenge of finding places that would make filming the event as authentic as possible on Earth. Director Damien Chazelle's (La La Land) vision for the film was that of a practical look, as if being filmed in real time. In a Los Angeles Times interview with Josh Roenberg, Chazelle says, "I think it's just that I have a particular aversion to very noticeable CG, especially for this subject maer." As First Man's Location Office coordinator, I was able to get the inside scoop on First Man and it became the experience of a lifetime. LISA REISMAN: Kyle, let's introduce you to everyone. Tell me about how you got started and how long you've been in the industry. tt Photos courtesy of Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures, except as noted.
