Before modern cinema, the term “motion picture” referred to tossing children’s artwork out the window. Hold on to your finger paintings with today's GrouponLive deal: for $14, you get two tickets to see Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey at the Stevens Center in Winston-Salem (a $30 value).

As the fall film premiere of the RiverRun International Film Festival, Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey explores the creation of Elmo—a global icon and beloved Muppet—during an 80-minute documentary narrated by Whoopi Goldberg. Winner of a Special Jury Prize at Sundance Film Festival and a Best of Fest Award at the Seattle International Film Festival, the documentary focuses on Elmo’s creator and voice, Kevin Clash, who dreamed of collaborating with master puppeteer Jim Henson and pursuing a one-man puppet recreation of Glengarry Glen Ross. Once recruited to introduce the lovable red-furred monster to the Sesame Street audience, Clash became part of the Jim Henson family, which is illustrated through archival footage of the company’s workshop and interviews with prominent Henson players such as legendary puppeteer Frank Oz and producer Joan Ganz Cooney.
