Renaissance Entertainment & Media Group Goes to the Moon and Beyond With Lost Apollo 11 Tapes

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - March 5, 2009) - Renaissance Entertainment & Media Group, LLC has finalized an agreement with the owner of a set of Apollo 11 lost reels of tape which are believed to be the best quality broadcast video tapes of the APOLLO 11 EVA.

Mr. Gary George of Las Vegas, Nevada had purchased the reels at a GSA auction sometime in June of 1976. The Apollo 11 EVA tapes were included in a total purchase of 1150 (one thousand one hundred fifty) tapes of assorted sizes for a purchase price of $ 217.77 dollars (two hundred seventeen and seventy-seven cents). Mr. George was an Engineering Intern at NASA at the time of the purchase.

Renaissance has formed Tranquility Pictures, LLC to produce a Documentary film based on the "Lost Tapes" and the Gary George story to be released for the 40th Anniversary of the Moon Walk.

The Apollo 11 Mission has been a source of mystery and disbelief since Neil Armstrong first set foot on the lunar surface on July 20, 1969 and is considered to be the most important event of the last century!

Renaissance will also contribute 3% of revenue to The Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, ASF, a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Corporation established in 1984 to establish scholarships for college students who exhibit motivation, imagination and exceptional performance in the science or engineering field of their major.
