tim burton, a career without downtime
At Hitek, we like to test your knowledge and pique your curiosity by regularly offering quizzes on works of pop culture, whether it’s movies, anime, or even video games. In recent weeks, so you have to check if you actually knew the movies Harry Potter and their backstage, or the cult replicas of Pirates of the Caribbean. Rebelote this week with a new series of 15 questions which, this time, do not dwell on a particular film or saga, but which concern the entire filmography of one of the most popular directors of his generation: Tim Burton . The 64-year-old American began his film career in the early 1970s, when he was just over 20 years old. For nearly 15 years, he devoted himself to making 13 short films, The Island of Doctor Agor in 1971 at Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp in 1984.
Subsequently, after a short break, Tim Burton tried his hand at feature films with Pee-Wee Big Adventure in the mid 1980s. From there, his career began to really take shape, and the director made a name for himself in the industry, while making himself known to the general public. In fact, it’s very simple: between the end of the years and the middle of the 2000s, he chained successful films, a good part of which is today considered cult: Batman (1989) and its sequel Batman: The Challenge (1992), Mars Attack! (1996), or even Charlie and the chocolate factory (2005) are just a few examples. It was also during this period that Tim Burton began collaborating with his favorite actors such as Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter, now more or less replaced, notably by the Frenchwoman Eva Green. For the anecdote, all three were reunited in 2012 in the fantastic and horrifying comedy Dark Shadows.
