Thunderbirds Are Go...Again

Well, it looks like WETA Workshops has had a hand in rebooting the old Thunderbirds television series, some 50 years after the original aired.  There have been a few abortive attempts to remake Gerry Anderson's most successful puppetshow, some creepier than others, but this one captures the meticulous look of the original, while using CGI to update the characters so they retain the spirit of the originals while having better proprtions and movements.

Fan Film Friday: Thunderbirds 2010

Republibot 4.0's picture

A neatly done little fan film.  The effects shots are very good (except where they try to put CGI Character into them.)  This was done by the same fellow, Chris Thompson, who did the UFO fan film from a few weeks ago.  This must have been him 4 years younger.


The acting leaves something to be desired, but otherwise, it's top notch!
