World Television Premiere of unseen short films from Jim Henson
Jim Henson was best known for his work in the field of puppetry, namely that of the Muppets. He also produced many experimental films, short subjects, and other projects that utilized a range of film making techniques - including stop-motion, computer, cut paper, and paint animation as well as live-action. ShortsTV, the world’s only 24x7 linear channel for short format content, is all set for a World Television Premiere of these previously unseen short films exclusively for their subscribers on Tata Sky, Airtel TV, DishTV & d2h. JIM HENSON: THE EARLY WORKS is a group of short films that will give viewers a slice of Jim Henson’s life.
One such film from the list is Time Piece, a 1965 American experimental short film directed, written, produced, and starring Jim Henson. The film depicts an ordinary man living in constant motion, in a desperate attempt to escape the passage of time. Time Piece is one of the few live-action projects produced by Jim Henson that did not involve any form of puppetry. The short film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film in 1966.
Other films on the list are Alexander The grape, Wheels that go, Run Run, Shearing Animation, Cat & Mouse, Drum West, and Ripples. Each of the Short films showcases what made Jim Henson famous over the years.
