The prince of darkness stops us motionless with his next creation
After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor (Frankenstien) harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, the entire town's residents learn that getting a new "leash on life" can be monstrous.
This past year I had the opportunity of working with animators Carl Paolino and Matthew Manning (both of MTV's Celebrity Deathmatch fame) on the forthcoming stop-motion animated short The Halloween Pranksta as the project's cinematographer. When approached by Paolino I jumped at the chance to work within my favorite genre and also get a rare inside look at two seasoned artists plying their craft on an artform that has fascinated me since childhood. As a result, I have gained an added appreciation for both the craft and its artisans.
So when I saw the news that Tim Burton's next production - FRANKENWEENIE - was a Gothic stop-motion animated film—in black and white (!)—I couldn't help but jump for horrific joy. Yet another chance to see the work of a master in a magical medium, as well as share the experience with my 9-year old son, Ethan (the family's next emerging horrorphile)!
