1/-/1986 – ‘In LA give Digital go ahead on titles of Labyrinth. In UK – looping. Mira – no longer my assistant.’

For several years, Jim pursued the possibility of doing a project using the computer generated animation technology being developed by Digital Productions. After a few false starts, he was happy to be able to take advantage of their innovations to create the CGI owl that flew through the opening title sequence for his 1986 film Labyrinth. While a seemingly small thing, it marked a potential new direction for Jim, one that resulted in the creation of the Henson Digital Puppetry Studio currently in use to create shows like Sid the Science Kid.
