A Behind The Scenes Tour of Jim Henson’s Creature Shop

This is a fantastic sixteen minute feature that goes behind the scenes at Jim Henson’s Creature Shop. Creative Supervisor Peter Brooke – who many people will recognize from the reality competition show Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge – explains what the workshop does and how it combines modern technologies with classic techniques to advance the art of puppetry and animatronics. He also gives a demonstration of the patented Henson Performance Control System and how it can be used to bring both practical and digital characters to life.
