Gerry Anderson's Firestorm at Kickstarter

I hope that all you fellow fans of the works of Gerry Anderson have already seen this exciting new project. 

Jamie Anderson has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund Firestorm, a new sci-fi series filmed in "Ultramarionation." 

The idea for this series originally came from Gerry Anderson and John Needham in 2001, and was called "Storm Force." 

This heir to Stingray (1964-1965), Thunderbirds (1965 - 1966), and Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons (1967-1968) is set to feature practical effects -- meaning real miniatures, real explosions, and puppets. 

I'm super excited about this project, and would love to see it come to fruition (perhaps as a precursor to a new Space:1999 follow-up...), so check out the video below, and if you can, think about contributing.  I just pledged!
