Director & Writer
Award-winning author of Live TV from the Moon, Live TV from Orbit, and editor of Skylab 1 & 2: The NASA Mission Reports, Skylab 3: The NASA Mission Reports, and Skylab 4: The NASA Mission Reports, Dwight returns to the art of filmmaking. Armed with an in-depth knowledge of Skylab, he presents the largely forgotten Skylab Program in a detail on film not seen since 1973.
Dwight was born in Sydney, Australia and became an international broadcasting professional. After studying television theory at North Sydney Technical College he moved to San Diego, USA where he completed his TV production training. He returned to Australia and worked in TV before heading back to university majoring in Psychology. Television was the industry for which Dwight’s heart was really beating and so he returned to the industry. Naturally, when he heard of an unusual opportunity of expanding digital satellite TV in Eastern Europe he jumped on a plane. It is in Europe, having moved from Great Britain to Germany – where he still works today as a transmission engineer.
CEO of 1080 VMC, the company behind the production of Searching for Skylab and also Dwight’s wife. Attracted to the idea of making a film showcasing the Skylab project after being made aware of the countless science experiments undertaken during the mission, she became passionate about helping to bridge the gap between the science examples conducted during the Skylab mission and what little is known to the public the world over. Alexandra boasts the Walt Disney Company as one of her more high-profile clients.
Stephen’s specialist knowledge of the NASA archive has been influential to the success of several documentaries, including feature-length “The Last Man On The Moon”, a profile of moonwalker Eugene Cernan. His BBC science documentary “Destination Titan” has been repeated on BBC Four several times and has been sold around the world.

Soundtrack & Theme Song
10 Cent Janes
Hot off the release of their self-produced and self-recorded album, Between Troubled Cities, 10 Cent Janes jumped at the chance to record the soundtrack to the Skylab film. In a radical departure from their traditional rock sound, the band gives a funk-inspired theme song Horizon Riders.
