This film marks Wendy’s directorial debut. With her visual effects background, we had to know more about her approach to directing this. Did her background in effects inform her directing? The answer lies in who she is as a person. Adapting books for the screen can be difficult. Julia shared what they had to cut from the book for the film. Despite some missing characters, this film was truly beautiful. It managed to capture the magic of the book, which at the end of the day is what is important.

Interview With Uncle Travelling Matt

When someone asks you if you want to talk with Uncle Travelling Matt, the answer is yes. We are no strangers to interviewing Fraggles but that didn’t prepare us for this. Uncle Matt (aka the legendary Dave Goelz) had questions for us. Questions we weren’t quite sure how to answer. I mean how would YOU explain Thursday. See what we mean?

But, that didn’t take away from all the fun we had speaking with him. We shared our views on holidays, fruit cake (root cake for Fraggles), and more. At the end of the day, the holidays are not about Thursday, but spending time with your loved ones.
