I am confident that you have seen at least one Tim Burton film, whether you are aware of it or not. Timothy Walter “Tim” Burton is an American film director, producer, artist, writer, and animator who was born on August 25, 1958. His horror and fantasy films are recognized for being dark, gothic, macabre, and eccentric.


He also enjoys recasting actors, actresses, and vendors from previous films, such as Johnny Depp, Michael Keaton, and Helena Bonham Carter. Burton has also collaborated with musician Danny Elfman, who has composed scores for all of Burton’s films except two. His films are typically quite successful.
