Corpse bride



Hi to everyone,
well its been a long time coming but I have finally got my act together and posted stuff on my blog. All my friends seem to have turned into blogaholics . Matt Jones is a blogaholic and Uli is definitely a blogaholic. So its my round . But they always say that!

for nearly two years I worked as one of about six storyboard artists on Tim Burton's corpse bride film . That may seem a long time to spend boarding a 77 minute film .....and it was .
Story development never goes in a straight line but I think it is safe to say this went through a particularly twisty ,curly ,Tim Burtony route before we ended up with the film you see in the cinema today .During a six week period early in the production 'story' was halted whilst rewrites took place . So the art dept. asked whether we could paint some portraits and landscapes that could be used on the model sets. So I jumped at the chance . Some were used in the film and some weren't .

Thanks for looking at my blog and don't forget to go and see the corpse bride so that we can make more movies in London !

I loved Corpse, great stuff on your site as well. I love seeing the pre-production that goes into any animated film. Hope to see more soon.
