Transcript of Tim Burton

Tim Burton
Enter Johnny Depp...
Too clean
"This role for me was not a career move. This role was FREEDOM. Freedom to create, experiment, learn and exorcise something inside me. Rescued from the world of mass produced, bang em out TV death by this odd , brilliant young guy who had spent his youth drawing strange pictures"

-Implies Director has been very hands on, strong creative vision.

- EXAMPLES of the films he has used this element in.
- WHY he uses this element, what is the purpose/effect?
