Pod 155: Michael Shanks talks Thunderbirds

Michael Shanks is a filmmaker based in Melbourne. In part one of his chat with Jamie, he discusses how he first discovered Thunderbirds, why he loves the fact that he can identify the puppets as puppets, and how puppetry and special effects fit into the contemporary world of modern filmmaking. Plus, lots and lots of Australian accents!

Playing Officer Orrin in Gerry Anderson's last live action series 'Space Precinct' clearly wasn't enough to put Richard off the worlds of Gerry Anderson!

As well as co-hosting the Gerry Anderson Podcast and the almost-monthly Facebook, Twitch, Periscope and Youtube broadcast, FabLive, Richard has also taken parts in the audio series 'Terrahawks' and the pilot minisode for the forthcoming 'Gerry Anderson's Firestorm'.
