Ever given any thought to the man behind the red furry monster? A new documentary that is premiering at the Sundance Film Festival later this month focuses on Kevin Clash, puppeteer to one of the world's most beloved and recognized children's characters.

"Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey," tells the story of Clash -- his beginnings, his rise to fame as the creator and now handler of Elmo and much, much more. The movie, sold out for all five of its screenings at the festival, was made by the husband and wife team James Miller and Constance Marks.

Would you recognize Kevin Clash if you saw him on the street?
