Calling all Supermarionation fans!
On May 27th the Arts in Isolation team at the University of Hull are organising Nebula 75: A Day of Puppets. This free one-day event will host the production team behind Thunderbirds: The Anniversary Episodes for a live screening and Q&A of their new Supermarionation web series, Nebula 75. The team will be showcasing Supermarionation and ‘Superisolation’ filming techniques for audiences of all ages.
The show was created by Stephen La Rivière and Andrew T. Smith and their team between March and June 2020. The show was filmed entirely under UK lockdown conditions with remaining puppets, props and materials used in previous productions as well as surrounding bookshelves, cardboard boxes and other household objects for set design. Not constrained by its living-room studio origins, the series has gone on to earn a dedicated fanbase and has been profiled on BBC Radio 4, Channel 4, and in the Radio Times.
The event will include:
– A live screening of Nebula 75
– A live Q&A session with the Nebula 75 team
– An exclusive, live onstage filming demonstration of Supermarionation puppetry techniques, with a discussion showcasing how art and creativity can thrive in the most unpredictable and challenging of circumstances.
Nebula 75: A Day of Puppets will be streamed live to worldwide audiences and to local Hull schools and colleges from Middleton Hall at the University of Hull.
This is an all-day event with sessions taking place between 10am and 4pm (with breaks). Attendees will be emailed a link to the live-stream prior to the event, along with a schedule detailing specific timings of the morning and afternoon sessions.
