The first launch is scheduled for the end of 2024, the new project will be placed on board the Axiom Space space module, which will be installed on the International Space Station some time before the first launch, and then separated from the ISS and become the Axiom Station around 2028.
Numerous films and TV shows are set in outer space. But as of 2022, none of them have been filmed in space. Everything should change soon when mega-movie star Tom Cruise travels to the ISS to film a sequence for an upcoming movie.
Hoping to build on the success of this project, SEE announced plans to build a film studio based on the Axiom module called SEE-1, which will be fully dedicated to making entertainment movies… in space!
According to a press release announcing the new venture, “SEE-1 is scheduled to launch in late 2024 and dock with the world’s first commercial space station, Axiom Station, while it is connected to the International Space Station.”

SEE-1, co-founded by Elena and Dmitry Lesnevsky, the two producers behind the Tom Cruise project, has already engaged a number of creative and executive partners, including former executives from HBO Sports, Viacom and other companies specializing in creating unique entertainment products in the field of cinema. , television, music and other content-creating enterprises.
“SEE-1 is an incredible opportunity for humanity to move into another realm and start an exciting new chapter in space,” said Dmitry and Elena Lesnevsky. “It will provide a unique and affordable home to limitless entertainment possibilities in a location equipped with innovative infrastructure that will open up a new world of creativity.”
What’s more, the production duo noted, “With world leader Axiom Space building this cutting-edge, groundbreaking facility, SEE-1 will not only be the first, but also the highest quality space structure to expand the global entertainment industry by two trillion dollars into low Earth orbit.” .
“SEE-1 will demonstrate and use the space environment in an unprecedented way,” added Axiom chief engineer Dr. Michael Bain. “The design of the inflatable module provides about six meters in diameter of an unobstructed pressurized volume that can be adapted for a variety of activities – including an on-board state-of-the-art media production capability that will capture and convey the experience of weightlessness with immersive effect.”
The press release notes that SEE-1 is expected to be operational as an enterprise by December 2024, which would be in the early stages of building the Axiom module.
