Day 45

Last night I went to the Tim Burton exhibit at the TIFF LightBox.
Unfortunately we werent allowed to take any pictures other than a few of this sketches that were outside before you enter the exhibit.
So I tried to capture a few of this interpretation.

This one is his take on Hansel and Gretel, the children's fairy tale.
It was quite a strange story board when you looked at the pictures alone, but then you turn around and there a big screen television with the exact interpretation playing in video behind you.
It was so strange because it wasn't just adapted from the images he drew, props, costumes, machines, and the house was made exactly how he had drawn them. Even Hansel and Gretel were two little Asian children, which is how they were depicted in his drawings.

That is what I noticed the most in the exhibit. Things that he drew and created were rarely altered or changed mostly everything was executed precisely the way he had envisioned it with a pencil and paper.

This is a shot of the the Hansel and Gretel story board.
