R.I.P. Gerry Anderson

Visionary English filmmaker, writer and producer Gerry Anderson has passed at age 83. Anderson perfected the live-action use of puppets through a process of Supermarionation, used by the British production company AP Films. Anderson produced a series of TV shows that hold up well today, including:

Supercar (1961)
Fireball XL5 (1962)
Sting Ray (1964)
Thunderbirds (1965)
Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons (1967)
