Capt. Power was the first TV series to integrate live action, CGI and digital effects. ALL digital effects were created in an edit suite prior to digital compositing tools being invented. The entire series and all VFX layers used 1" video tape and a lot of "shoot from the hip" visual effects treatments. When green screens were forgotten on set, manual rotoscoping was done in the online edit suite using a B&W graphics camera, bits of white paper and whiteout to create the necessary masks. Average time for one effect = 3.5 hours. See more »

Captain Power & his soldiers of the future may have been saddled with one of the worst titles for a t.v. series, but don't let that fool you. It was one of the most sophisticated sf shows of its time.With terrific scripts,some of which were written by Babylon 5 creator J Michael Straczynski,a wonderful cast, and some cutting edge computer animated special effects,all make this series memorable.While it was a Saturday morning kids show, it managed to be dark & edgey in its atmosphere.The adults acted as such, & there were no stereotypical cute kids,cute animals, or funny sidekicks to distract us from the intriguing plots.In an interview with JMS that I read years ago,he said that he & the other writers decided not to approach this show as being just another Sat morning show for the tiny tots.They were going to write as mature & cool a show as they could & not limit themselves under any labels.The result was one dynamic sf series.What a shame such a fine show was cancelled because the interactive toy associated with the it was not a huge seller.
