The official 10th anniversary making-of book for the Duncan Jones directed sci-fi film Moon.

Directed by Duncan Jones, written by Nathan Parker from a story by Jones and with Production Design by Tony Noble, Moon is a 2009 science fiction drama following Sam Bell, a man who experiences a personal crisis as he nears the end of a three-year solitary stint mining helium-3 on the moon. Independently financed and produced on a modest budget, Moon became an instant cult classic. It was well received by critics and audiences alike, and was particularly praised for its scientific plausibility and realism. 

Making Moon takes an in-depth look back at the film’s production: It features interviews with the film’s key creatives and includes rare concept and behind-the-scenes images, as well as excerpts from the original shooting script.
