He played on the water polo team at Burbank High. Burton was an introspective person and found pleasure in painting, drawing and watching movies.
His future work would be heavily influenced by the works of such childhood heroes as Dr. Seuss and Roald Dahl. His concept art never made it into the finished films.
While at Disney in , Burton made his first short, Vincent , a six-minute black-and-white stop motion film based on a poem written by the filmmaker, and depicting a young boy who fantasizes that he is his hero Vincent Price , with Price himself providing narration.
The film was produced by Rick Heinrichs , whom Burton had befriended while working in the concept art department at Disney. The film was shown at the Chicago Film Festival and released, alongside the teen drama Tex , for two weeks in one Los Angeles cinema.
This was followed by Burton's first live-action production Hansel and Gretel , a Japanese-themed adaptation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale for the Disney Channel , which climaxes in a kung fu fight between Hansel and Gretel and the witch. Having aired once in at pm on Halloween and promptly shelved, prints of the film are extremely difficult to locate, fueling rumors that the project did not exist.
It tells the story of a young boy who tries to revive his dog after it is run over by a car. Filmed in black-and-white, it stars Barret Oliver , Shelley Duvall with whom he would work again in , directing an episode of her Faerie Tale Theatre and Daniel Stern. After Frankenweenie was completed, Disney fired Burton, under the pretext of him spending the company's resources on doing a film that would be too dark and scary for children to see.
Pee-wee Herman gained mainstream popularity with a successful stage show at The Groundlings and the Roxy which was later turned into an HBO special.
Burton, a fan of the eccentric musical group Oingo Boingo , asked songwriter Danny Elfman to provide the music for the film. Their teenage daughter Lydia Winona Ryder has an obsession with death which allows her to see the deceased couple. It would be converted into a cartoon of the same name , with Burton playing a role as executive producer, that ran on ABC and later Fox.
Burton's ability to produce hits with low budgets impressed studio executives, and he received his first big budget film, Batman. The production was plagued with problems. Burton repeatedly clashed with the film's producers, Jon Peters and Peter Guber , but the most notable debacle involved casting.
For the title role, Burton chose to cast Michael Keaton as Batman following their previous collaboration in Beetlejuice, despite Keaton's average physique, inexperience with action films, and reputation as a comic actor.
Although Burton won in the end, the furor over the casting provoked enormous fan animosity, to the extent that Warner Brothers' share price slumped. Burton cast Jack Nicholson as The Joker Tim Curry being his second choice in a move that helped assuage fans' fears, as well as attracting older audiences not as interested in a superhero film.
The success of the film helped establish Burton as a profitable director, and it proved to be a huge influence on future superhero films, which eschewed the bright, all-American heroism of Richard Donner 's Superman for a grimmer, more realistic look and characters with more psychological depth.
It also became a major inspiration for the successful s cartoon Batman: The Animated Series , in as much as the darkness of the picture and its sequel allowed for a darker Batman on television.
Burton claimed that the graphic novel Batman: The Killing Joke was a major influence on his film adaptation of Batman: I was never a giant comic book fan, but I've always loved the image of Batman and the Joker. I don't know if it was dyslexia or whatever, but that's why I loved The Killing Joke, because for the first time I could tell which one to read.
It's my favorite. It's the first comic I've ever loved. And the success of those graphic novels made our ideas more acceptable.
His friend Johnny Depp , a teen idol at the end of the s due primarily to his work on the hit TV series 21 Jump Street , was cast in the title role of Edward, who was the creation of an eccentric and old-fashioned inventor played by Vincent Price in one of his last screen appearances. Edward looked human, but was left with scissors in the place of hands due to the untimely death of his creator.
Set in suburbia and shot in Lakeland, Florida , the film is largely seen as Burton's autobiography of his childhood in Burbank.
All of these details and stories are shared alongside some incredible photos.
It was very enjoyable spending a few afternoons reading through it to review it. I also found myself having a deeper appreciation and affinity for both versions of the movie as I read through this.
This is a quality book and if you are into making-of books, definitely go out and grab it.
Personally, I would grab it just for how it pulls back the curtain and shares even more about Disney history. It did not influence the opinions of the author.
Opinions are wholly the views of the author. Burton has worked repeatedly with Johnny Depp, who has become a close friend of Burton since their first film together.
