Jim Henson on the Making of Dark Crystal

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jun 5, 2008 in Animation |

I love watching this footage — it’s so sad that Jim Henson passed away so early in 1990. Henson could have gone on making Muppet films forever, but in 1982 he took a real chance and directed Dark Crystal which was so different than anything else at the time. The amount of faith it must have taken to think that puppets could sustain a serious film for over an hour. It’s because of Henson that the way was paved for someone like Tim Burton to make The Nightmare Before Christmas.
