Default Options In Movie-Making Technology

I believe Gerry Anderson is reported as saying that he used puppets to begin with because that was the only affordable way he could realize his ideas. And I guess it’s fair to say that, once it became clear to those with the money that his ideas had commercial potential, he was able to take the next step into implementing at least some of them using live actors.

He even said he felt “ashamed” that he had to use puppets in his series; it took him a long while to accept what his fans kept telling him, that with all their faults, they are still classic series that stand the test of time.

And once computer graphics became good enough, he was quick to embrace that, with New Captain Scarlet. He even talked about bringing back Thunderbirds and others of his series as CG. Unfortunately, death got in the way...
