Meet the Man behind the Puppet: Kevin Clash

One NFF 2011 film that has been charming audiences along the festival circuit is Being Elmo. Anyone from the age of 40 to 4 is able to identify that red, loveable baby monster, but how many people have seen behind the puppet? Through Constance Marks’ insightful and captivating documentary, we are able to meet Kevin Clash, an imposing figure but whose kind spirit has created one of the most loved and recognizable children characters of all times. 

Check out this delightful interview from Entertainment Weekly with filmmaker Constance Marks and Kevin ‘Elmo’ Clash as they discuss ad-libbing, Jim Henson and Clash’s own daughter reaction to her father Being Elmo.
