Visible crew/equipment: During the landstrider sequence, before they reach the Crystal castle, you can just make out in one shot, the safety wire attached to the performer as he runs. (DVD extras says the landstrider performers had these wires all the time but this is the only time you see them).
The Dark Crystal (1982)
Ending / spoiler
Directed by: Frank Oz, Jim Henson
Starring: Frank Oz, Jim Henson, Dave Goelz, Kathryn Mullen
Jen places the shard inside the crystal. The Mystics and the Skeksis join together and they go back to their original form (the urSkeks). Ages ago, in their arrogance, they misused the crystal and became separated and then the world changed. The urSkeks revive Kira and before leaving they tell Jen and Kira to take care of their world. The last scene is the land restored to its former beauty.
Jen: When single shines the triple sun, what was sundered and undone, shall be whole the two made one, by Gelfling hand or else by none.
Trivia: The actors inside of the Skeksis had television monitors inside of their costumes, so that they could see where they were going.
Question: When Jen looks at the shard, he sees in image of a Skeksis striking the crystal, but why when the beings of light appear, do they say that they were the ones responsible for shattering it?

Answer: The skeksis and the beings of light are the same, each being a different side (good and bad) therefore it was there evil side (the skeksis) that struck the crystal.
