Since getting back from France, it’s been crunch time, catching up on Astronaut Academy 2 and helping Raina finish up her new book, DRAMA. To help unwind, we’ve re-watched the three original Muppet movies to help build excitement for The Muppets.
I also got to see one of my favorite movies of all time, The Dark Crystal on the big screen at BAM as part of their Puppets on Film festival! I was too young to fully appreciate experience of seeing The Dark Crystal in a theater when it was released, but went on to watch it hundreds of times on HBO, VHS, DVD and wherever else I could. Every time I see it, I find new things to appreciate and my respect for all the filmmakers grows and grows! So seeing it in a theater was a big deal for me. The event was extra special because they played a puppet short film called “Yama’s Song” by Sam Hale beforehand and Cheryl Henson, president of the Jim Henson Foundation introduced it! I also got to briefly meet Heather Henson in the lobby afterwards, who was promoting a touring project called Handmade Puppet Dreams. So a magical night all around!
