He is a film director, film producer, a writer and an artist and he has been doing this since 1982 and still does it today. When he was young he used to make short films in his back garden using crude stop motion animation techniques or shot them on 8mm film with no sound. One of his oldest short films is ''The Island of Doctor Agor'' which he made at the age of 13. At school Burton found his interest and pleasure in painting, drawing and watching films. His future work was heavily influenced by childhood heroes Dr.Seuss, Roald Dahl, Edgar Allan Poe and the horror and sci-fi films he used to watch. After graduating from school, Burton attended the California Institute of the Arts to study character animation, where he made the shorts ''Stalk of the Celery Monster'' and ''King and Octopus''. One of his classmates was Henry Selick, who later worked with Burton to make the films ''The Nightmare Before Christmas'' and ''James and the Giant Peach''. He also makes films for a veriety of audiences; from children to adults. His films are dark because of the characters he includes for it and the narratives he makes for them. Importance Tim Burton is an important animator as he makes dark, spooky films unlike other animators. A film created by Shane Acker who was inspired by Tim Burton. Just by looking at the front cover you can see that the film is going to be quite freaky, like Burtons films. Roald Dahl The Brothers Quay ''James and the Giant Peach'' is a childrens stop motion film. The film was directed by Henry Selick, produced by Tim Burton and Denise Di Novi. It is based on Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach; one of Burtons influences.

The Nightmare before Christmas is set in ''halloween town''. The main character is a skeleton and he goes to ''christmas town'' and learns about being nice to people isntead of scaring them. Roald Dahl was a novelist, poet and a screenwriter. The genres he catered for were children, adult lirtature, horror, mystery and fantasy. Burton's films are very dark and spooky compared to Roald Dahls novels. The Brothers Quay are identical twins. Their occupations are film directors and animators. They create scary stop-motion animations which would be mainly aimed at adults. Their films are scary because of the narratives and the characters and things they use to make the films. Burton's films are very similar to The Brothers Quay films, but Burton's are a little less scary.
