This October will see the release of Filmed In Supermarionation; a documentary dedicated to the history Gerry Anderson's amazing puppet television programs. Those of you who are long standing visitors to my blog will need no explanation as to why this is such cool news. Shows such as Stingray, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, and Joe 90 were important parts of my childhood and have followed me well into middle age. As a lifelong fan; I'm eager to hear the inside story and that's just what this film promises to be.
Based on the 2010 book Filmed In Supermarionation: A History of the Future by Stephen La Riviere (who also directed the film); this documentary will give viewers an unprecedented view into the creation of these legendary shows and the brilliant, creative minds that made them possible. I can't wait. Although October won't be here for a little while yet; I've posted two trailers below that should ease the pain of waiting. Enjoy!
