Brian Henson's Evolution of PuppetryEdit
Brian Henson gave a presentation in 2013 on how the Henson-style revolutionised puppetry and how it paved the way for many of the puppetry and animation techniques used today. Henson (with an armadillo puppet) and Dave Chapman (with Dougie Colon) demonstrated various puppetery techniques. Henson also presented an overview of the groundbreaking technical achievements in animatronics and digital puppetry that continue to be a part of the company's work.
