Brendan McCarthy's history with the Thunderbirds movie is pretty well known. He did some designs, they went in a different direction.
What I didn't know what that it was his second runaround with Gerry Anderson's sci-fi puppets. He did the storyboards (below) on the Dire Straits video for the song Calling Elvis, which featured the Straits as Thunderbirds, and designed the video with famed director Steve Barron (later working with McCarthy on ReBoot fame). Here's a Making Of documentary, storyboards and the finished video.
