As someone who is a huge Tim Burton fan, I am really looking forward to this. LACMA will be hosting an exhibit featuring “Tim Burton‘s creative work, both as a director of live-action and animated films, and as an artist, illustrator, photographer, and writer.” As cool as I think it will be to see pieces from his films, I’m more interested in seeing his art, photography and some of his writing. A couple years ago my wife and I saw “Nightmare Before Christmas” at the El Capitan and before the movie they showed his first animated short, “Vincent.” It was so cool to see his early work and the beginning of what would eventually become his trademark style. And of course they have this show running through Halloween. Tim Burton LACMA followed by WeHo on Halloween? THAT could be fun.
And for all the haters out there who think all his films are the same and have no depth, blah, blah, blah…..good for you. Don’t go see the exhibit. More room for me!
