Tim Burton Film Style

Good Essays
Tim Burton is a movie director that works his own style even in the places that want other things. He started his career in Disney animation, which didn’t work out very well in the end. He didn't enjoy his original job as a apprentice animator, and when they moved him the designing the original characters for new movie, Disney didn’t like the result. The general unhappiness caused Tim Burton to start his own projects. These movie he created, some of which include Charlie and Chocolate factory, Edward scissorhands, and Corpse Bride, were fully his own ideas, and these went over much better with critics and moviegoers. In his movies, it easy to see how he put his ideas into all of them in any subject matter. Tim Burton uses certain things throughout …show more content…
Close-up on grandpa george in his flashback of the little bird. Close up on Edwards fearful face early in the movie, when Peg finds him, and approached him. Close up on Emily as she talks to the maggot and spider after Victor said the wrong thing.
Tim Burton uses non-diegetic sound almost as often as diegetic sound to set the mood. The music alway represents the mood, for any character at any time. Non-diegetic danger music every time Augustus Gloop is shown in chocolate room. Non diegetic sound everytime Edwards uses his hands to cut something, which seems fast most of the time. There is danger music when the parents come in Corpse Bride.
Tim Burton uses the same techniques throughout all his movies to create the feelings in his movies, and creating his own style. The usage of sound, camera angles, and lighting create much of what makes a movie, feeling. Lighting is important, and it hold an important part through all his movies. Along with the basic lighting angles, he uses colors as well, often making the mood out of color, or the setting. Camera angles are often pointed at the character who’s feeling how Tim Burton wants the watcher to feel, to bring out sympathy in them and make them feel the same way. Sound adds to that effect, and

    I believe this is to ensure the viewer will receive maximum satisfaction from watching the movie. As a producer takes multiple shots, he or she will also take them from multiple different angles. The camera shots are in so many different places and directed toward a certain object to help the movie form flawlessly. Josh Boone used different angles to improve the quality of the movie. Each scene had a camera taken from different angles.…

    Tim Burton’s films are loved and known all across the world. Many people have been entertained by the many Burton films by his unique work and quirky style that was inspired by his childhood. His childhood was full of being different and being somewhat of an outcast. He took memories from his childhood and incorporated them into his films. Burton uses cinematic techniques such as low key lighting and flashback in order to create the effect of strong emotion off of the characters and to bring out the “light” of the story within his viewers; this is important because it helps to convey the message that everything isn’t as it seems.…

    With this tactic I believe that Charlie increased his audience’s anticipation which influenced them to love him and his work even more. Wilson says that one factor that could have put a hold on the release of Modern Times was because Chaplin was not an experienced scriptwriter. In most of his film Charlie creates as he goes but in this film in particular he decided to create his own script in hopes to reduce time and production costs. Interestingly, Laoghaire says that not being an experienced script writer could affect his chances of being a great all around filmmaker. He says…

    There was uncertainty throughout the film that kept the audience guessing on how the story would unfold. Hitchcock used his directing style and artistry to create a since of mystery around the plot and the actors helped to enhance it with their dialogue. I thoroughly enjoyed watching this film and I look forward to viewing more films directed by Alfred Hitchcock and more films with Grace Kelly in them. This Hitchcock movie was simple but very calculated. This film kept me guessing on whether or not Stewart was delusional or maybe he was right.…

    Jonny Depp once said that “people say I make strange choices, but they're not strange for me. My sickness is that I'm fascinated by human behavior, by what's underneath the surface, by the worlds inside people.” In this quote, Johnny Depp says that he is exploring the possibilities of what a person can conjure with their imagination. Johnny Depp is that actor who had someone tell him that he could do anything he wanted, so he did it all, including being cast in many Tim Burton movies. In Tim Burton’s works such as Edward Scissorhands and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, there is an entirely different world to be discovered in each one. All of Tim Burton’s films have one similar theme to be mentioned.…

    Just about everyone can voice their opinions on a film that viewed as we all do after leaving the theatre. It may be found to be useful when a friend or individual is interested in seeing the film themselves. However, I believe the only way that you could understand a film is by analyzing the film beyond the average person. When one begins to analyze they begin to develop an understand of the film and may grow to love the film. The director Hitchcock is a fairly well known director.…

    From the classic film style which has developed within traditional American film history, “naturalisation” of the cinematic space has evolved and become a base for the form of presentation and viewer experience. This term refers to the linear perspectives of realistic or mimetic paintings, but also the naturalistic presentation within space and time. It is this perspective that is mimicked through horizontally based dolly shots, painting the scene like a picture as the camera rolls past each presented space. Wes Anderson, whose films make use of the formal construction of this signature shot movement, is one of my inspirations as a developing cinematographer. Along with his favorite cinematographer, Robert Yeoman, Anderson creates theater-like compositions that reveal highly detailed sets and perfection within the frame.…
