Tim Burton in Toronto!

A Tim Burton masterpieceClimb inside this man’s head? Not sure you’d come out the same. But we are thrilled to hear that just in time for Halloween, TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) has announced that an exhibition of Tim’s drawings, sculptures, and videos will open here November 26th.

A scene from Alice in WonderlandFresh from the madly popular exhibit at The Museum of Modern Art in NYC (thank you MoMA – we owe you) there are over 700 items to terrify and titillate. Don’t know if we’ll get to see anything from his fashion shoots

An Installation by Tim Burtonbut since it’s being held at the newly opened hot new home of TIFF – The Bell Lightbox – we’ll have a chance to catch all his films on the big screen again, where they need to be seen.

From his childhood drawings – what must that childhood have been like – to his latest stuff, it looks to be an incredible collection from the reigning King of Set Design (He long ago dethroned Ridley Scott, who left behind his great cinematography days of Bladerunner and Legend to instead work on big overblown blockbusters like Gladiator…yawn)

    Burton is known for using recurring collaborators on his works; among them are Johnny Depp, who has become a close friend of Burton since their first film together; musician Danny Elfman, who has composed scores for all but five of the films Burton has directed and/or produced; and domestic partner Helena Bonham Carter. He also wrote and illustrated the poetry book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories, published in 1997, and a compilation of his drawings, sketches and other artwork, entitled The Art of Tim Burton, was released in 2009.`
