Tim Burton Animates A Clunky Robot To Promote His MoMA Exhibition

Tim Burton's MoMA show has moved to the Bell Lightbox center in Toronto (that's the new headquarters of the Toronto International Film Festival) and the director has animated a short piece to advertise the event. It's very short — thirty seconds or so — but consequently also quite pure. It's like the Tim Burton of old, of whom we've only seen glimmers in his last few films. I want this Tim Burton back on movie screens. Perhaps the revamped Frankenweenie will provide.

Watch the clip after the break.

From the TIFF website:

TIFF is proud to present this once-in-a-lifetime look into the wild imagination of cinema's greatest arrested adolescent. From childhood drawings to original sketches, paintings, sculptures and props – take a journey inside the realm of Tim Burton. If you've only seen the movies, you've just scraped the surface!

November 26 – April 17
