Voice Cast:  Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau, Charlie Tahan, Atticus Shaffer, Robert Capron, Conchata Ferrell and Winona Ryder

Director:  Tim Burton

Producers:  Tim Burton, Allison Abbate

Executive Producer:  Don Hahn

Screenplay by:  John August

Based on an original idea by:  Tim Burton

From creative genius Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” The Nightmare Before Christmas”) comes “Frankenweenie,” a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.

 

A stop-motion animated film, “Frankenweenie” was filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which elevates the classic style to a whole new experience.

 

In Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie” young Victor conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences.

 

 

NOTES:

 

  • When Tim Burton originally conceived the idea for “Frankenweenie,” he envisioned it as a full-length, stop-motion animated film. Due to budget constraints, he instead directed it as a live-action short, released in 1984. 
  • “Frankenweenie” follows in the footsteps of Tim Burton’s other stop-motion animated films “Corpse Bride” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas”—both of which were nominated for Academy Awards®.
  • Over 200 puppets and sets were created for the film.
  • The voice cast includes four actors who worked with Burton on previous films: Winona Ryder (“Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands”), Catherine O’Hara (“Beetlejuice,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas”), Martin Short (“Mars Attacks!”) and Martin Landau (“Ed Wood,” Sleepy Hollow”).
  • Several of the character names—Victor, Elsa Van Helsing, Edgar “E” Gore and Mr. Burgemeister— were inspired by classic horror films.

FUN FACTS 

 

  • “Frankenweenie” follows in the footsteps of Tim Burton’s other stop-motion animated films “Corpse Bride” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas”—both of which were nominated for Academy Awards®.

 

  • Stop-motion animation is one of the oldest animation styles. There are 24 frames per second in the stop motion for “Frankenweenie.” This means that the animator must stop and position the puppet 24 times to get one second of filmed action. On average, one animator can only produce 5 seconds of animation per week.  Multiple puppets of the same character allowed animators to work on more than one scene at once. There were as many as 18 animators working independently of each other at one time.

 

  • “Frankenweenie” is the first animated film that Tim Burton has directed for Disney.

 

  • All of the characters in “Frankenweenie” are based on Tim Burton’s drawings. He did some of the drawings in 1984 when the original live-action short of “Frankenweenie” was done and the others he drew especially for this new, feature-length animated version.

 

  • The talented voice cast includes four actors who worked with Burton on previous films: Winona Ryder (“Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands”), Catherine O’Hara (“Beetlejuice,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas”), Martin Short (“Mars Attacks!”) and Martin Landau (“Ed Wood,” Sleepy Hollow”).

 

  • Production designer Rick Heinrichs enjoys a long-standing professional relationship with director/producer Tim Burton, having worked in various capacities on many of Burton’s films, including “Sleepy Hollow,” for which he won an Academy Award®; short films “Vincent” and the live-action “Frankenweenie”; feature films “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure,” “Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands,” “Batman Returns,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and “Planet of the Apes.” Most recently, Heinrichs designed the Burton-directed, live-action feature “Dark Shadows.”

 

  • Classic horror films from the 1930s, like “Frankenstein” and “Dracula,” inspired several of the character names—Victor, Elsa Van Helsing, Edgar “E” Gore and Mr. Burgemeister.

 

  • Over 200 puppets and sets were created for the film; there were 17 Victors and 12 Sparkys. Since each animator worked independently on different scenes, multiples were needed. They also needed backup in case a puppet required repair.

 

  • The Puppet Hospital on the “Frankenweenie” set was always full. These highly trained model makers spent months repairing limbs, fixing hair and skin issues and mending costumes that were ripped or dirty. This team even found time to create all of the generic background puppets as well as a few of the main characters from scratch.

 

  • The first puppet designed for the show was Sparky and the scale that they established with him set the standard for the whole rest of the film. Tim Burton had a very specific vision for Sparky’s character and really wanted him to act and move like a real dog. The armature needed to be very intricate and 4 inches is literally the smallest they could make him and still have him display all the behavior and personality that was required. Once they had his size fixed, the puppet makers were able to scale the rest of the characters and sets properly.

 

  • Incredibly talented artists are able to take Tim Burton’s original drawings and sculpt them into three-dimensional sculptures, which are then cast in a combination of silicone and latex. Their costumes are all sewn with miniature stitches to keep in scale.  Wigs are made for them from real human hair and then applied strand by strand so that the puppets have a more realistic hairline.  Inside each puppet there is a metal armature, which acts like a skeleton and gives the animator the ability to move the puppets and act out the scenes with incredible subtlety and finesse.

 

  • The film takes place in the fictitious town of New Holland, a suburban development circa the 1970s, much like Burbank, California, where director Tim Burton grew up.  A windmill sits on a hill overlooking the town and adds just the right touch for New Holland’s annual Dutch Days celebration.

 

  • The sets for the film were built on tabletops. The vast majority of the miniature props for the sets were made by hand and hand-painted and detailed.

 

  • The music for “Frankenweenie” was composed by Danny Elfman, whose working relationship with Tim Burton goes back to 1985 when Elfman composed the score for “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure.” Elfman has composed the scores for all of Burton’s films thus far, with the exception of two: “Ed Wood” and “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.”

Move over Buffy, there is a new Vampire Hunter and his name is Abraham Lincoln.

Move over Buffy, there is a new Vampire Hunter and his name is Abraham Lincoln.        “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”     The Review

Without a doubt “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” is Work of Art!!
 
As you, I also thought Abe Lincoln as a Vampire Hunter would be a crazy suggestion for a film when I first read the film was being made.  I am sure glad I was WRONG! The film is anything but cheesy or corny.  It is visually Stunning, a Fantastic Script, and Superb Acting.  Timur Bekmambetov who grew up in a Communist Regime did an extraordinary job at interpreting the meaning of Freedom from an American’s Point of View. Bekmambetov also did a great job at recreating American History, and American Pop Culture on Film.  A feat I have not seen since Milos Forman Directed the Musical “Hair” back in 1979. Tim Burton made the right choice in Co-Producer Timur Bekmambetov to direct Seth Grahame-Smith’s script based on his Creative Graphic Novel under the same title “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”.  Let’s not forget that the film was shot in with 3D in mind, which looked incredible on screen.  The film opens with a beautiful Camera Shot of the city of Washington DC’s growth in the last 150 years in a backwards mode, very cool.  
 
 

Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter

 
 
The story revolves around Abraham Lincoln’s (Benjamin Walker) secret life as a Vampire Hunter in which he logged on his personal journal.  Abraham began his trek after the loss of his Mother over a debt.  His obsession with vengeance blinded him from something a lot more sinister than he ever imagined.  That’s when Abe met his Recruiter/Trainer Henry Sturgess (Dominic Cooper).  Henry saved Abe from a Vampire attack and asked Abe if he will join Henry in his Cause of Vampire Hunting but, only after Abe will be willing to remove vengeance from his eyes.  Abe agrees now the secret life and training begin.  If memory serves me correct we were taught in Grammar School not only was Abraham Lincoln the 16th President of the United States who ended Slavery but he also built a Log Cabin from the wood he would chop off from trees.   What better than an Axe as weapon of choice.  Abe handles the Axe the same way Bruce Lee would use his trademark Nunchaku (Nun-Chucks).  Once Abe is fully trained all I can say is Buffy you better watch out because Honest Abe might take your job.  Like every hero Abe also has a Side-Kick, Will Johnson (Anthony Mackie) is a Loyal childhood friend who Abe and his Parents saved from a treacherous man named Jack Barts (Marton Csokas) the reason Abe decided to become a slayer.  The story also has a villain of villain’s Adam (Rufus Sewell) a vampire who is thousands of years old.  Adam is one of the reasons why this story is so brilliant.  The evil vampire Adam devices a plan in which  Slaves in the South are to be used as Live Stock for an endless supply of blood for consumption.  Masking Vampires as Plantation owners and fueling the Civil War.  Seth Grahame-Smith does an amazing job at writing fiction influenced by facts of American History.
 
 
 
 
 
Timur Bekmambetov took Seth Grahame-Smith script and seamlessly combined Fact and Fiction on screen.  Since this is Abe’s secret life Seth Grahame-Smith had the luxury of writing a story where he can fit in, combine and substitute facts and moments of American History with vampires.  As you are watching the film you see key moments of the Civil War such as The Battle for Gettysburg and The Gettysburg address all responsible due to vampires.  If one would not know History you would believe what you see on the screen to be true.  Don’t be surprised if you have the urge to research Abraham Lincoln to see what fact is and what is fiction?  Think about it Abraham Lincoln was a very tall man and rugged man, add the Top Hat, Axe, and a Jacket with coattails and you have yourself a Vampire Hunter.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” is a must see and well worth it on 3D!!!!!

ABOUT “BRAVE
Set in the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland, Disney•Pixar’s “Brave” follows the heroic journey of Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald), a skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson).

When she turns to an eccentric Witch (voice of Julie Walters), she is granted an ill-fated wish and the ensuing peril forces Merida to harness all of her resources—including her mischievous triplet brothers—to undo a beastly curse and discover the meaning of true bravery. Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, “Brave” is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and signature Pixar humor.
