Known for his films with a unique and even eerie vibe, Tim Burton is a famous screenwriter, producer and director. He started his career as an animator for Disney, which lasted for less than one year before he began to explore his own potentials and make films with extraordinary themes. Generally, most of the movies by Tim Burton were focused on a mixture of horror and fantasy, which includes top-grossing films such as Edward Scissorhands, Nightmare Before Christmas and Beetlejuice. He was also the man behind the movie Batman, and it gained outstanding reviews from critics and audiences from various parts of the world.


Timothy Walter Burton, also known as Tim Burton, is an accomplished director, among other professions. He was born in Burbank, California, and he has always been fascinated with horror movies by the brilliant Roger Corman. In addition to his avid interest in this type of movie, he was also a noted artist. In fact, he studied art at the California Institute of Arts, and it was here where he developed his skill in drawing. In this school, Burton also gained a degree in animation, which allowed him to take his interest in art more seriously. Upon completing this course, he found employment at Walt Disney Studios where he became an apprentice animator. However, he decided to explore other horizons and quit his job. This allowed him to work on his own films, particularly the short movie entitled "Vincent". This initially earned him an award and recognition from critics.


Burton began making more films that are geared towards themes he loved the most, which were more into horror and fantasy. For instance, he released a version of Frankenstein, which was originally and uniquely his own style. This short film was called Frankenweenie, which was released in 1984. The year after that, he directed another movie, which was a comedy entitled "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure". Another movie that he directed was Beetlejuice, which came out in 1988. This ghost story starred Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis and Michael Keaton, which was a mixture of horror and fantasy. However, his biggest break was the movie Batman, which he directed. This top-grossing film sold about $100 million during the initial 10 days upon its release. It was followed by more films by Burton including Edward Scissorhands, which was a social satire with so much depth at the same time.
