Last week I watched a really sweet film about the puppeteer behind one of the most well-loved muppets out there, Elmo. If you've ever been a fan of Sesame Street or the Muppets it's a great insight into the work of Jim Henson and the process behind creating the muppets themselves.
Although I've always been more of a Bert and Ernie fan, it was really interesting to see how Elmo got his personality from the person behind the puppet, Eric Clash. Growing up, Clash was fascinated by puppets and began making them for himself. It wasn't long before he met a bearded man called Kermit Love (yes!) and was on his way to work for one of the most popular children's series in the world.
