Network has released its brand new trailer for the upcoming documentary Filmed In Supermarionation, featuring digitally remastered clips from the iconic 1960s shows. The film will be out in October 2014.
Directed and produced by Stephen La Riviere, Filmed In Supermarionation is the definitive documentary on the work of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson and the iconic puppetry and animation technique they developed through the 1960s including Stingray, Captain Scarlet, and most famously, Thunderbirds.
The world premiere of Filmed In Supermarionation will take place during the BFI’s Sci-Fi season Sci-Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder, from 30th September 2014.
Network is also announcing a very special and very limited Blu-ray box set following the premiere of Filmed in Supermarionation on 30th September.
Called simply Supermarionation and available from 20th October, with pre-orders from 1st August, this is the ultimate box set for aficionados of Gerry Anderson’s iconic Supermarionation series and will be available exclusively from Network and gerryanderson.co.uk.
Limited to just 2,500 copies, it marries the brand new film with a selection of key episodes from the Supermarionation spectrum, all painstakingly restored for the first time from the original film elements.
A newly expanded and redesigned edition of Stephen La Riviere’s book is also included, as well an exclusive one-off TV21 comic, and a wallet of postcards featuring newly created artwork based on the film’s graphics, all presented in a beautifully crafted box.
