🌈 Still chasing rainbows here...He created a way to make puppetry effective for television. And looking back at any BTS, production and collaboration was just so energetic! I always wanted to work in a studio just like that.

It's difficult to do distance collabs even with able releases like the recent short I helped an old friend, yet there's still chances of global connections in these increasingly tense times. A bigger change in audiovisual industry is around the corner, and I'm gonna learn the new tools to keep my flippery feet going down the road again! :smile:

RIP to Jim Henson, one of the greatest 20th century entertainers and visionaries. I always wonder how he would have used modern technology if he were around to continue working with film and TV.

His death affected me profoundly. I was 5 years old when he died. I vividly remember my grandmother calling to tell me when she heard the news, because she knew how much the Muppets were a part of my childhood. 30 some odd years later, losing my own father by the age of 30, I realized how much I wish I could’ve stopped time, but grateful for all that I did have. I’m sure Jim’s children felt the same. Thank you Jim. Just one person….♥
