Filming Model Miniatures from Moon (2009)

Duncan Jones’ Moon is one of our favorite science fiction films in recent memory, and it featured wonderful use of scale model miniatures to for shots of the lunar base and vehicles on the lunar surface. We get up close with a selection of these gorgeous miniatures–made by Bill Pearson and his model shop team at the Shepperton Studios–which have just come out of a private collection to be part of Prop Store’s upcoming Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction (December 1-2).

Check out the full catalog of props and costumes from this collection here: https://ukm.propstoreauction.com/m/view-auctions/info/id/244
