Interview: Kevin Clash and Constance Marks, Being Elmo


I absolutely adored Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey, and I was delighted to be able to talk to director Constance Marks and puppeteer Kevin Clash about the film. We spoke a bit about Clash’s work, Elmo’s past, and what aspiring puppeteers can do to get into the business. The documentary goes into more detail about Clash’s life, and it hit theaters in select cities this past Friday. You can check out their website for more details, and if it’s in your city, I highly recommend checking it out. It’s like a big bundle of happiness.

But wait, there’s more! Check back tomorrow for another interview with one of Clash’s coworkers. Hint: there are pterodactyls involved. You know you’re excited.
