Tim Burton by Jenny He, Ron Magliozzi, Tim Burton

Tim Burton has reinvented Hollywood genre filmmaking over the past three decades. With a visual style inspired by the aesthetics of animation and silent comedy, Burtons work melds the exotic, the horrific and the comic, manipulating expressionism and fantasy with the skill of a graphic novelist. Published to accompany a major career retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art, this affordable volume considers Burtons career as an artist and filmmaker. It narrates the evolution of his creative practices, following the current of his visual imagination from his earliest childhood drawings through his mature oeuvre. Illustrated with works on paper, moving-image stills, drawn and painted concept art, puppets and maquettes, storyboards and examples of his work as a graphic artist for his non-film projects, this volume sheds new light on Burton and presents previously unseen works from the artists personal archive. Acclaimed American filmmaker Tim Burton(born 1958) is known for his dark, gothic films about quirky outsiders, many of which are both Hollywood blockbusters and cult classics. To date they have been nominated for 16 Academy Awards and have won six. They include Pee-Wees Big Adventure(1985), Beetle Juice(1988), Batman(1989), Edward Scissorhands(1990), Batman Returns(1992), Ed Wood(1994), Sleepy Hollow, (1999), Charlie and the Chocolate Factoryand Corpse Bride(both 2005) and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street(2007), among others. Alice in Wonderlandis slated for 2010. Burton has collaborated extensively with composer Danny Elfman and with actors Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter.
