The Art of Frankenweenie Exhibition

If you haven't seen Frankenweenie by Tim Burton yet, I urge you to go! I love stop motion animation so I was thrilled to be able to attend the premiere and opening of the London Film Festival on the 10th October.

***SPOILER ALERT*** If you don't want to know anything about the film before you see it, look away now!
The BFI have staged an art of exhibition over the last two weeks. I managed to get to see it yesterday. It was unfortunately the last day of the exhibition but I have taken quite a lot of photos so if you missed it but are still interested in how Tim Burton makes his movies, you may be interested in the following images!
This is Sparky the dog (Frankenstein's monster as it were, although he's quite adorable!)
Victor Frankenstein, the owner of Sparky is making calculations in his parent's attic on how to harness the power of lightning to create life.
Edgar 'E' Gore Victor's friend.
The class listening to Mr. Rzykruski during a science lesson, shown in the clip below:
Mr Whiskers who is one of my favourite characters! You can see a clip courtesy and copyright of Disney below:

Here you can see examples of the armatures for Sparky and early models detailing Sparky running and stylistic ideas.
Mr. Rzykruski the science teacher who inspires Victor to use lightning to reanimate his little dog Sparky. Amazing stuff!
