Inspiration + Influence: Jim Henson

Jim Henson made avant garde films and probably would have continued if The Muppets hadn’t taken off. I know there was a comic recently of one of his unfilmed works. The Muppets were my earliest memory and influence, so Henson already had a place in my Mt. Rushmore, but the strangeness and unique sound design and pacing of this are influencing me as a filmmaker alongside the same as Orson Welles’ experimental design or George Melies’s in-camera effects.  Sound and cutting are what drives the story in “Timepiece.”
