FYM REWIND: BEING ELMO • A PUPPETEER'S JOURNEY • NOW AVAILABLE ON NETFLIX INSTANT
2011's Being Elmo is a riveting documentary following one man's inspiring artistic journey through life, ultimately achieving his dreams via tireless determination, parental support and sheer otherworldly providence. Kevin Clash may or may not be a name you’ve heard before, but the character he rejuvenated in the 1980‘s on Seasme Street, Elmo, is indeed a name anyone (young and old) can recognize. Watch the Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey official trailer below:
Director Constance Marks (known for editorial work on the much beloved HBO series 'Real Sex') follows Clash’s incredible life story, proving that with hard-work, determination and boundless love and support from your parents, you can truly accomplish anything. Dreams DO come true.
Since Clash was a young child he was moved by the creativity of Jim Henson. What this documentary brings to light is the joy and love Clash sends to millions of impressionable minds growing up through his beloved development of Elmo. It's a MUST SEE film in our book, now available on Netflix Instant. The doc is so profound and moving, the only negative side after watching -is it will leave you wondering why it wasn't nominated for an Oscar!?!? They Live- Cheers, FYM.
