Tim Burton’s biographyTim Burton is an American director who proved himself as an animator. He often writes scripts for his films and also acts as producer. The gloom of presentation of the material in addition to specific humor is peculiar to Burton. He is told to have managed to rediscover Gothic. Net worth: $150 million.
Early yearsTimothy Walter Burton was born in Burbank on August 25, 1958. His father Bill was a former baseball player and after completing his sports career he settled in the state unit responsible for the parks and recreation areas of the city. His mother Jean ran a shop selling products for cats.
It is considered that the future director started shooting short films in his yard since 8 years old. Almost nothing from that material has remained. There was a cemetery near the house, probably it also left an imprint on Burton’s vision of the world.
In 1976 Tim entered the California Institute of the Arts, where he learned the basics of animation. Three years later he got a job at the Disney studio. It is hard to say his career in the company was right away, various things happened: misunderstandings with bosses, promotions, and moves to other departments. Burton released the Vincent cartoon-short film (1982) under the auspices of Disney. Even then, many noted how different are Tim’s and his employers’ styles.
