Victor Yerrid is a puppeteer who has worked on many Henson Company projects - including several HDPS productions, such as The Skrumps and Sid the Science Kid.

Yerrid shares his thoughts on the advantages of the HDPS system for performing in a 2007 interview, stating:

One advantage is that we can do separate layers of performance. For example, if we had a great take of a scene, but the eye blinks were a little off we can go back and re-perform just the blinks while keeping everything else. We don’t do a whole lot of that because the performances are generally stronger if you keep the whole thing, but sometimes it can be very useful. Another advantage is that we have the benefit of working with extremely talented motion capture performers. They perform the body of the characters and they will often have great movements or ideas for a scene that I wouldn’t have come up with on my own. It really makes the performances a team effort. We also don’t have to raise our arms above our heads when we perform which helps me to preserve my already deteriorating spinal cord.
