Welcome to New York City. The year? 2009. And we venture into the Museum of Modern art to view their newest installation. Wide-eyed quirky drawings. Statues with long limbs, jaws, full of teeth, and a stare scary enough to give you nightmares. Glow in the dark carousels better fit for a haunted house than a carnival. [see sources for all the MOMA footage links] No -- it’s not Halloween -- we are entering the mind of Tim Burton and witnessing a display of his drawings, creations, and works of art from over the years. You’ll recognize iconic characters like Edward Scissorhands, movie props like the Penguin’s bassinet from Batman Returns, and plenty of sketches and arts from the holiday favorite The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Set designs, Gothic elements, and the way he plays with light and shadow can be seen in everything from Batman to the upcoming live-action adaptation of Disney’s Dumbo. But how did Tim Burton rise in the world of Hollywood? What journey has the director gone on to create such a unique style and visual sense of mind?! Get ready to dive into the filmography of the strange, weird, and often twisted world of Tim Burton.
