It’s kinda flown under the radar a little, maybe because it launched straight to Netflix, but Richard Linklater’s Apollo 10½ came out earlier this month and is, if nothing else, a very cool visual record of a very certain point in time.

This is of course very much Linklater’s thing, from Dazed and Confused to Everybody Wants Some, but this movie is a little bit different. Because it’s animated, everything just feels that bit more exaggerated, and vibrant; watch the trailer below and some of the very 60s things you’ll see, like cracking open the lid of a bottle on an ancient soda machine, look like the kind of wonderfully deliberate animated sequence of an otherwise mundane act you’d see in, say, a Miyazaki film.

I love it. Below you’ll find a collection of works from a number of different artists who worked on the film, much of it environmental art and backgrounds that help set the scene that this is a deeply 1969 movie. You’ll find links to each artist’s portfolio in their names.
