Thunderbird Poster

18 Jun


Software: Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1

Tutorial: Blue LightingTV YouTube Channel

The text treatment used on the Godzilla poster reminded me a bit of how the text was handled on the opening of the British TV show “Thunderbirds”. I was happy with the Godzilla poster, so I was confident that I could make a good looking Thunderbirds poster using the same techniques and a few of the same file resources.  Mind you it was easy, I had a best Thunderbird in the image – Thunderbird 2!

Background info: Supermarionation is a real word – it was the advanced (for the 1960’s) marionette animation system developed by AP Films and used by Gerry Anderson.  Supermarionation was used in such shows as Thunderbirds, Fireball XL5, Stingray, Captain Scarlet and others.

The background image is Tracy Island from the 2004 movie “Thunderbirds”.
