Today we went and saw the Tim Burton Exhibition at Tiff. It is the MoMA's tribute to Burton’s life work. The exhibit features childhood sketches, paintings, storyboards, puppets, and costumes, as well as other completed and non-completed projects, and screenings of his major movies. It was fabulous.
My favourite part was seeing the costume that Johnny Depp wore as Edward Scissorhands. This is a sketch of it: I was also delighted to find out that a full length production of Frankenweenie is in the works. Yay!
I think that I have seen every Tim Burton film except Planet of the Apes. (Hey Meep!!! Do you have that one? ). Yes, I have even seen Ed Wood :)
And Mom, just letting you know that he not only directed Edwards Scissorhands -- but also Mars Attacks. So maybe this wouldn't be the exhibition for you ;)
It ends on April 17th.
