Corpse Bride Unveiled

First off, I want to say that I really like Tim Burton. I enjoy his art, and his film making. The creepy and likable characters that he creates appeals to me. One of my favorite movies is The Nightmare Before Christmas. It was a visual delight.

About a month ago, I saw the trailer for The Corpse Bride and my jaw hit the floor. I thought that it was Nightmare again.

I can’t wait to see this film.

Here is a link to an article talking about the process and the equipment used in making this. I was surprised that they used Canon SLRs and Macs for editing and that is it, no CGI. Awesome.

‘Bride’ Stripped Bare
Technologically, this is a movie of many firsts; it’s the first feature-length, stop-motion film edited using Apple Final Cut Pro (FCP), it’s the first feature shot using commercial digital SLR still photography cameras and, perhaps most significantly, it’s the first movie to choose digital cameras over film cameras based on the criterion of image quality.
