Gerry Anderson RIP

Highly influential sci-fi action TV program and film producer Gerry Anderson recently passed away, and over at fraternal site LERNER INTERNATIONAL ENTERPRISES, there is "Gerry Anderson Always Knew the Value of Blowing Up Stuff!," a massive tribute to Anderson and his work—
especially his love of blowing up massive spaceships! 

There were so many photos left over, it would be a shame not to share Anderson’s beautiful, high-tech, special-effects overloaded 1970s proto-weirdness.
Puppets fighting aliens in supersonic jets? You gotta love it.
More images are below, after the “break.”

Also recently posted at LIE, if highly detailed miniature effects work is your thing, is a massive post in praise of Lincoln Center’s recent 70mm (!) screening of 2001: A Space Odyssey, as well as of the film itself.
If you’ve ever wondered what 2001 was all about, this is the essay to read.

Happy New Year Everyone, and May Your 2013 Be “Most Excellent!”

Gerry Anderson (1929-2012) RIP

A tribute in pictures…
