The Jim Henson Legacy: Jim Henson Behind the Seams 

Dir: Various
Year: Various
Country: USA
Duration: 84mins

Unclassified: All ages

This combination of documentary clips, interviews and fantastic behind the scenes footage provides a rare glimpse into the science (and ambitious madness) behind the great puppetry works in Henson’s TV and feature film production.

It’s a joy to watch the ensemble prepare and execute the behind the scenes choreography that make these unique characters come to life in a way that has made them such an important part of childhoods across the globe, across economic differences and across language and cultural divides.

This is a rare and very enjoyable look at the science behind Henson's unique work and allows you to appreciate his wonderful work in a whole new light.
