Tim Burton

Biography

Tim Burton
Burton began drawing from a young age and developed a strong interest in animation. He went to California Institute of the Arts and was awarded a fellowship and employment with Disney. He worked on the movie 'The Fox and the Hound' and found that mainstream Disney was not his thing. Disney gave him the freedom to work on personal projects and though his animations were deemed to be unsuitable for children, his work was good enough for him to be entrusted with the reins of 'Batman'. Although Burton admits that Batman is one of his least favourite works, it received a huge amount of critical acclaim and led him to make Blockbuster movies like 'Edward Scissorhands', 'Batman Returns', 'Beetlejuice', 'Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street', and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
