Thunderbirds

Working with UK-based Century 21 Films, Gazelle Automation’s Lindsay and Justin Lee were lead puppeteers on special 50th anniversary episodes of the British sci-fi series Thunderbirds for ITV, created with the classic Supermarionation techniques used on the original 1960s series.

Along with a talented crew, they sculpted, painted, wigged, strung and performed the Supermarionation marionettes as well as worked on the miniature special effects photography to bring the Thunderbirds vehicles to life.

The episodes premiered at the British Film Institute in August 2016. For more information about the company specializing in Supermarionation, visit www.century21films.co.uk.
