Co-directed by Fx Goby and Google Doodles’ Hélène Leroux, ‘Back to the Moon’ celebrates pioneering illusionist and filmmaker Georges Méliès.
In a first-of-its-kind collaboration between Google Doodles, Google Spotlight Stories, Google Arts and Culture, Cinématèque Française and Nexus Studios, the film launched as the first ever virtual reality (VR) / 360 interactive Google Doodle.
Transporting the viewer inside his magical world via some of his best known films, styles, techniques and characters, the film also features a Mathieu Alvado score recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra.
