While photographer Norman Seeff has transfixed onlookers with iconic faces married to the lens, he has also captured the minds behind the camera—the directors. In his newest collection, “Director Series,” Seeff unveils never-before-seen images, as well as some rather famous ones, of some of entertainment’s most brilliant minds, including Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Jim Henson, Ridley Scott and John Huston.

The World of Jim Henson (1994)
A documentary from 1994. This section has comments from Jane Henson, Jerry Juhl and Francis Ford Coppola, and archive footage of Jim Henson. There is also some archive footage from Henson’s early works.
It’s unbelievable that this man has done puppetry since 1955 for ‘Sam And Friends,’ appeared with his puppets on shows like ‘The Ed Sullivan Show,’ created the children’s show ‘Sesame Street’ which started in 1969 and is still going strong, created the Muppets, made films such as ‘The Dark Crystal’  and ‘Labyrinth’  and gave life to the likes of Kermit the Frog, The Swedish Chef, Rowlf the Dog, Ernie and Guy Smiley. This documentry includes a lookback over his career featuring the best bits from his films ‘Sesame Street,’ ‘Fraggle Rock,’ ‘The Storyteller’ and , of course, the very successful ‘The Muppet Show.’ Also people ranging from Harry Belafonte to Francis Ford Coppola talk about his life too. This is a great documentry for the lovers of the late Jim Henson’s work!
