TIM is stop-motion animated short tribute to Tim Burton. It is narrated by Christopher Lee and inspired by Tim's short film VINCENT.
Many people believed for a time that the art of stop-motion animation was dead (or at least in critical condition). Tim Burton's love of the art form helped change that. This is our chance to thank him! This project is a full-on stop-motion animated short film that I have been developing for over a year, and it's ready to begin.
The film is beautifully narrated by none other than Sir Christopher Lee! Generous and gracious, he supported the idea and agreed to be a part of this very special tribute.
The money raised through Kickstarter will be used to create the sculptures, armatures, molds and finish the stop-motion puppets, in addition to the rapid prototyping / 3D printing of several components. Many other production and post-production elements will be required including some visual effects, compositing, motion control shots, sound design and of course original music. In order for the film to be able to screen theatrically, it will need to be finished in high resolution. As such, there will be some hardware and software necessities.
I invite you to visit www.wondermotionstudios.com for more information. This will be the place where you can get an exclusive inside look at the behind-the-scenes "making of". We will feature regular video posts and I promise you this will be a fun project to follow! For you hardcore stop-motion enthusiasts, we'll have some instructional video posts as well and may even tip a trade secret or two. Whether you're a newbie or a pro, there will be something to learn, so you'll want to tune in to that!
On behalf of myself, and my amazing team, we are profoundly grateful to have our shot and can't wait to start. But it really starts with you! None of it will be possible without your help and support!
