We not only got to see the film, but we got to hear from Kevin Clash and Elmo after the film. I was laughing to myself as all of these adults were asking if they could give Elmo a hug, or directing questions directly to him. One grown man from the audience asked if he could come to the front and tickle Elmo.
Overall the film was an amazing look at the making of Elmo and the man behind him. Kevin’s parents were amazing and supportive in the way that they raised him and a great model for other parents.
Some interesting facts:
That’s all I could type into the notes section of my iPhone. My little fingers couldn’t type any faster. But I’ll say that the couple of hours spent were intriguing and touching. And I love Sesame Street. (Grover’s my favorite too.)
