Behind the scenes

Behind the scenes is always interesting to watch. Knowing where the voice comes from and how they got there.


fun behind the scenes

Loved This!

This film had me smiling non-stop and then tearing with emotion. It was delightful to watch Kevin Clash's journey to follow his dream and the determination he had that got him there. Some of the old footage of Jim Henson with Clash was amazing, too. I highly recommend this film to anyone who loves a good story. It was inspirational! Great for school aged kids to adults.

Interesting Watch

This was a good watch. Learning about Kevin Clash was fun, but learning about puppets was fascinating.

Fascinating Journey

Kevin Clash follows his dream with the support of his family. You also learn some interesting things about puppets. A very good movie.

Feel good movie

I heard about this movie on a podcast I listen to, and decided to check it out. It is seldom that I watch something more than once, but Being Elmo made that short list. Great movie for people who like stories about individuals who follow their dreams.
