SXSW Interview: Richard Garriott: Man on a Mission
Local serial entrepreneur and Austin game development industry pioneer Richard Garriott launched an incredible adventure into space in 2008. The feature documentary Richard Garriott: Man on a Mission followed him through his training and flight with the Russian space program. I spoke to director Mike Woolf about the film as well as Garriott himself recently. Hear what he has to say about why Woolf and producer Brady Dial took on this project, the challenges of training and the benefits of private space travel in our latest podcast. You can also read my review of Man on a Mission, which premiered at this year's SXSW Film Festival.
