This is now official, it appears that Power Rangers for 2009 is back to Live Action. PR 2009 is a go. They're not too fond of the talking Zords, but not sure if they can get around it. So ladies and gentlemen, it looks like the live action Power Rangers series will get another season. There's still no official decision on a title for the season yet, but yes we can likely expect to see this team as the Rangers next year.

Here's something quite interesting: Base Camp Studios recently teamed up with Toon Disney to create the season campaign and launch of Power Rangers Jungle Fury. The effort included a series of TV spots including a sneak peak of the show, character profiles and even a spot highlighting some of the Ranger"s cool gear. All of this was fortified with footage shot for the campaign of a Bengal Tiger, a Cheetah, a Timber Wolf and an African Leopard.
Base Camp"s role was to write and produce the campaign from beginning to end.
"Base Camp is unique," says Creative Director, Steve Kuhn, "We write the spots and we handle all production and post as well". Steve, who also directed the Big Cat Shoot, says, "We are comfortable developing advertising that speaks to their affiliates, their advertisers, as well as their viewers."
One of the highlights of the project was a green screen shoot with some rather large and dangerous animals. Of the tiger, Steve said, "He was just HUGE. Imagine if your couch just got up and started walking around". But the scariest by far was the African Leopard. "He was really well trained and did everything he was told but you could tell that if left to his own devices he would snack on someone"s arm. Since I was only about 4 feet from him, I was afraid that would be me."
Base Camp Studios then went to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and took high-resolution pictures of every jungle plant they could find. Then, they created the 3D jungle that was used extensively throughout the campaign. "In that jungle you would find the bad guys but also the good guys " who happen to be pretty dangerous themselves" said Steve.
In addition to Power Rangers Jungle Fury launch and campaign for Toon Disney, Base Camp Studios also created a ninety second trailer for the new show Aaron Stone, also on Toon Disney. Base Camp also recently completed several DVD launch spots for Cartoon Network, including Ben 10 and Sweet Sweet Fear, a collection of Halloween Cartoons.
