Shoot The Moon

Alexis is a producer of Shoot The Moon, a feature-length documentary about one effort to build an elevator to space. Above is the teaser trailer, and below is a quick verbal teaser:

Michael Laine has been trying to do something most people think is impossible for more than twelve years: build an elevator to space.

He's faced dire setbacks: the financial collapse crushed his company and he had to move home to care for his ailing parents. Still, there's hope. He raised $110,000 on Kickstarter to fund his most ambitious experiment: making a robot climb the tallest free-standing human structure in existence.

It's make or break.
