Recommends it for: fans of Corpse Bride or stop-motion animation
Shelves: halloween, film
Having seen "Corpse Bride," I really enjoyed this book; the last third is devoted to a sort of synopsis of the film, while the rest of the book tells how it was made. It was really interesting to see how stop-motion works, how the voices for the characters were chosen, and how the whole thing came together.
Truly die-hard fans of either the movie or of animation might wish for more detail, as this was more of an overview of the process, but I didn't feel shorted. Best of all, the book is filled...more
باز هم تیم برتون
اصلا تیم برتون ساخته شده برای این چیزا
شاید هیچکی مث اون نتونه دنیای مرده ها رو به این زیبایی و سرزندگی به تصویر بکشه
و باز هیچکی مث اون نتونه که تصویری سرد و مرده از دنیای زنده ها نشون بده
چیزی که تو کارخانه شکلات سازی، تو سویینی تاد ،ادوارد دست قیچی و تو عروس مرده به خوبی به تصویر کشیده شده
هرچند من فیلمشونو دیدم
اما تخصص تیم برتون تو طنز و نشون دادن رگه های تیرگی و سردی در روابط آدما حرف نداره
ولی عروس مرده موضوش عالیه مطمئنا به خوندنش می ارزه

The story of Corpse Bride may be about Victor and Emily, but its mostly about the creators behind the story too. Every little detail came from a thought, and every movement the puppet made came from an animator. This book features Tim Burton's art work, sketches,music,photography,story boards,and what it really took to make this movie a reality. The story is phenomenal, and even if its really morbid it still has a real touch of beauty.
I was so uncertain about having this book in the beginning but later I decided to buy it before it's too late, now I can congrats my self for having it ^_^ I really enjoyed it specially that it contained two sections I can say: About making the movie & Illustrated story, it was such a nice experience for me ^_^
It's always fascinating to take a look at how Tim Burton puts his strange movies together. Lots of photos of the miniature sets and characters and plenty of conceptual art. Tim Burton rocks!

Ah, the book was alright, but the movie is ten times better.

I guess when books are made into movies, they suck.
But when movies are made into books, they're good.

A truly original book(or movie) that I loved
