Being Elmo A Puppeteer's Journey
'Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey' traces Kevin Clash's rise from his modest beginnings in Baltimore to his current success as the man behind Elmo, one of the world's most recognisable and adored characters.
Pivotal to the film is the exploration of Jim Henson's meteoric rise, footage of a young Kevin dreaming of working with his idol and the ultimate achievement of his goal to become part of the Henson family of puppeteers.
In addition to puppeteering Elmo, Mr. Clash is arguably the creative force behind today's Sesame Street, producing, directing and travelling around the globe training other puppeteers. Millions know Elmo, yet when Kevin walks down the street he is not recognised. Hopefully this documentary will see this change.
