BC Mag #1: Tim Burton's Guided Tour Of The World Of Frankenweenie

Bleeding Cool Magazine article by Brendon Connelly.

Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie is clearly a very personal film. Made in his new hometown of London, it’s set in a fictionalised, miniaturised, stop-motion version of his native Burbank.

Like Burton himself, the lead character, Victor Frankenstein, tragically loses his pet dog at a young age. And also like Burton, he finds a way to bring this inanimate pup to life.
