Watch: First Touching Trailer for 'Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey'
With this wonderful doc finally slated for a rolling theatrical release starting in October and moving through December, we finally have the trailer for Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey, a charming documentary which brought warmth to many hearts in the winter cold of the Sundance Film Festival back in January. The chronicle of Kevin Clash, the puppeteer behind beloved "Sesame Street" character Elmo, went on to win a Special Jury Prize at Sundance, and both myself and our friends at The Film Stage (quoted in the trailer) absolutely loved every minute of this heart-warming story. It's a must watch! Watch the trailer below.
Here's the trailer for Constance Marks' Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey via IndieWire:
Directed by Constance Marks, narrated by Whoopi Goldberg, the documentary chronicles the life and career of Kevin Clash, a young child with dreams of becoming a puppeteer who would go on to bring life to Elmo, one of the most beloved "Sesame Street" characters of all-time. With focus on the art of puppetry, the inspiration of Jim Henson, interviews with iconic puppeteers and great archival footage, Being Elmo is an inspirational chronicle of Clash's triumphs and struggles to reach the success he enjoys today.
