Jim Henson Studios
Our LA’s BEST students from Los Feliz Elementary School were invited by Cinemagic to see a tour of the Jim Henson Studios in Hollywood. Cinemagic is an international film festival that also offers a range of film projects and outreach activities to engage young people.
Our students arrived at the Jim Henson Studios and watched a brief overview about the studio’s history. Then they toured the lot and entered “The Loft,” where they watched a live demonstration on how a puppet comes to life on the big screen.
After visiting The Loft, students headed to the main stage, where they were allowed to test their puppeteering skills in front of a camera.
Guided by Cinemagic and the Jim Henson Studios, these students were able to get a behind-the-scenes look at how some of their favorite shows are created, possibly sparking someone to pursue a brighter future as a creative engineer one day.
