At Sesame Street, we aim to educate children around the world. We take that very seriously, and sometimes, it means we can’t just repurpose existing content.
Take the above. That’s Elmo, holding a camera and talking to Mr. Noodle. It’s from an episode created in 2005. But we couldn’t use it for Kinect Sesame Street TV … because many of today’s preschoolers don’t know how that type of camera worked.
This is actually kind of sad. I try to use my camera around my niece still, I wouldn’t feel as bad if she broke it like I would my iphone. I get that kids won’t know what film is, but they really don’t know what a camera is?
