Burr Tillstrom | Documentary Film
Burr Tillstrom was Saugatuck's most famous resident. He left a wealth of memories as a neighbor, and community activist, as well as a rich archive, documenting his professional career in television as a puppeteer.
This will be the first chapter in a larger documentary, to be added to year after year. This project will record the memories Burr left behind, as passed along by his local friends.
In addition to local interviews and artifacts, the documentary will feature highlights from the collection of the Burr Tillstrom Copyright Trust, who has generously contributed to the project.
