Earlier this week I got a phone call - the directors of the Jim Henson Legacy are interested in pursuing my animated Jim Henson Documentary further. Jane Henson herself gave it the thumbs up. Right now I'm collecting a staff, drawing up a budget, and I have meetings coming up with Henson people.
One of the people now interested is Candy Kugel, whom I interviewed last year. She's one of the longest-running NY indie animators and one of the heads of Buzzco Associates, having created the Moon MTV spots, not to mention memorable Sesame Street sequences, like "It's Hip to Be a Square."
