The puppeteers

A talented and dedicated team of wonderful people with a diverse range of talents and enough awards and performing experience between them to fill a soccer stadium. Even though experience is kind of intangible and you can't fill things with it. And to be honest, although they have won lots of awards for acting and writing and making films, it is a bit of an exaggeration to say they'd fill an entire soccer stadium. That would be like 40,000 awards. Nobody's won that many. Just a figure of speech to let you know this is a talented bunch.

The Crew

Well, after that whole 'soccer stadium' debacle, we're going to be a bit more careful about the way we describe the crew. With over 60 years experience in film and television between them, they are the greatest team of filmmakers who has ever lived. Ever.
