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.
