John F. Kennedy (JFK): “We choose to go to the Moon”
Watch till the end of the video to catch the punchline 😀 Check out this inspiring Rice University speech reenacted in this thirty second machinima video of John F. Kennedy using the Unreal Engine 3 3D game engine, which is normally used for developing 3D video games rather than directing 3D animation production.
President John F. Kennedy, Address at Rice University on the Nation’s Space Effort, September 12, 1962 (Rice University speech):
We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.
President John F. Kennedy, Speech to Special Joint Session of Congress (25 May 1961):
I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the Earth. No single space project in this period will be more impressive to mankind, or more important for the long-range exploration of space; and none will be so difficult or expensive to accomplish.

This is an entry for Muvizu’s AMD Fusion competition… and my second Muvizu 3D animation production. How do you like it?
Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, lunar module pilot, walks on the surface of the Moon near the leg of the Lunar Module (LM) “Eagle” during the Apollo 11 exravehicular activity (EVA). Astronaut Neil A. Armstrong, commander, took this photograph with a 70mm lunar surface camera. While astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin descended in the Lunar Module (LM) “Eagle” to explore the Sea of Tranquility region of the Moon, astronaut Michael Collins, command module pilot, remained with the Command and Service Modules (CSM) “Columbia” in lunar orbit.
