Brian Henson talks ‘Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge’ Season 2

Although still not OFFICIALLY announced, at the NBCUniversal Upfronts Red Carpet, The Daily Quirk spoke to Brian Henson and he gave some tips to the possible designers for the second season of "Jim Henson Creature Shop Challenge".

Here is what was said:

Robert Bennett beat out the competition with his creepy creations on Syfy’s Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge this week, but that is not the last we’ll be seeing of the Muppet’s freaky cousins.

Brian Henson (son of Jim Henson), who is head judge on the series, provided some tips for new designers who will compete in Season 2 at the NBCUniversal Upfronts Red Carpet.

“Keep building and creating stuff,” he encouraged.

Henson said he hoped that future competitors could learn from the problems of this season’s designers.

“The artists were not used to working that quickly; coming up with an idea and executing it and then needing to come up with another idea,” he said.

Henson said it is not experience, but efficiency, that future creators need to focus on to succeed.

“Honestly, most creature designers start when they’re teenagers. So they’re already doing that to a degree, they just need to start accelerating,” said Henson. “I think people who want to come on the show and want to be a creature designer in future seasons – that’s what they should test themselves at, they should drill themselves doing it.”

When Season 2 makes its way to Syfy in the future (the airdate is yet to be determined), one thing is for certain — the show will remain, just as Henson described Syfy,  “Innovative, inspirational and cool.”
