This review is from: Frankenweenie (Disney Editions Deluxe (Film)) (Hardcover)
Length:: 1:21 Mins

Wonderful visual companionHere's the movie companion for Tim Burton's charming stop motion film Frankenweenie. It was originally a short film conceived in the early 80s and made in 1984. The 2012 film is a charming remake of that short film.

This is a large coffee table book with a matte cover with movie title in gloss. It's 208 pages.

The book is filled with concept art, storyboards, interviews and photos behind the scenes. Among the development art, there are even sketches by Tim Burton from 1982 of his short film. It's interesting to see the original Sparky the dog in sketch and his final stop motion figure. Included, of course, is the history of the original short film.

The art and photos are printed huge. They look great, especially the photos of the stop motion figures. The character designs are stylish and they really make full use of the medium for caricature to create characters of all shapes and sizes and facial expressions. There are photos of character sculpts and their armature beneath. I love looking at studio photos just to see the working environment, how they create the characters and sets, and the overall organised chaos of a production set.

This is a wonderful visual companion for the film.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Frankenweenie Visual Companion, 1 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Frankenweenie (Disney Editions Deluxe (Film)) (Hardcover)
I buy a lot of film art books and they vary massively in quality, this is one of the better of the bunch and includes lots of art as well as pictures from the set of the Film. I dont see how you could be dissapointed with this book if your a fan of Tim Burton or making of books the is a great buy. I prefer this film to Corpse Bride and its a good take on the Frankenstein theme.

This is the animation bible of excellence. A very well draw book with excellent annotation to the film. Drawing and characters really take centre stage. Certainly a must have with good direction for young animation or sand oldies alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars must have book, 24 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Frankenweenie (Disney Editions Deluxe (Film)) (Hardcover)
This is a must have book for anyone interested in stopmotion or film. Its price is a bit higher than your normal "art of book", but it's well worth the money, even more so if your a fan of Tim Burton.
