Michael Shanks is a filmmaker based in Melbourne. In part one of his chat with Jamie, he discusses how he first discovered Thunderbirds, why he loves the fact that he can identify the puppets as puppets, and how puppetry and special effects fit into the contemporary world of modern filmmaking. Plus, lots and lots of Australian accents!
