I chose Tim Burton as my animator, because I love his art style and creative storylines. I consider him an animation pioneer because he produced revolutionary films such as The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Tim Burton was born on August 25th, 1958 in Burbank CA, he is a film director, producer, writer, and artist. He worked at Disney for less than a year, then moved on to some of his own. Some of the big ones he is known for are Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Batman. As of Oct 5, 2015 his net worth was $140 million. His film ‘Big Fish’ received 4 Golden Globe nominations and an Academy Award nomination. He was fascinated with classic horror films from Roger Corman, so almost all of his films featured a mix of horror and fantasy.
