I discovered this film while looking for sound track composers (ticktockrobot are heroes of mine for their extraordinary animation but also finding the right sound).

Although I've had a longstanding draw to Graham Carter's art, I hadn't seen his creations animated.  Me, Marionette was released to accompany his show in May, to me it is perfect warmth for a cold Autumn night.

So much so the visuals (and Richard Spiller's soundtrack) re-inspired me to open up this blog during a period of "write don't talk."

The First Trailer for Tim Burton's new feature - Frankenweenie

This is the first release of footage from Tim Burton's new stop-motion animation full length feature Frankenweenie.

Back in the 80's Burton made a short film about a boy who brings his dog back to life. The idea and characters are similar but this film has light, fun and humour as well as the dark, lightening lit skies and gravestone moments. 

This is described as a Teaser-Trailer so we can expect more images before the release in October. Can I book my seat now?
