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; itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the first feature-length, stop-motion film edited using Apple Final Cut Pro (FCP), itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the first feature shot using commercial digital SLR still photography cameras and, perhaps most significantly, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the first movie to choose digital cameras over film cameras based on the criterion of image quality.
