See an Interactive 360° Video of the 'Frankenweenie' Stop-Motion Set
Excited for Tim Burton's new horror comedy Frankenweenie yet? That recent full-length trailer should've been more than enough to suck you in. This B&W stop-motion animated feature is being developed at Tim Burton's Animation Co. in London. While we've seen photos of these miniature sets before, now you can a taste of what it's like to actually step onto a stop-motion set while they're preparing to shoot a scene. Our friends at MovieViral found an interactive video online where you can click & pan around the set anywhere you want, while they explain the process of designing the scene. It's actually pretty damn cool, check it out!
Young Victor (Charlie Tahan) conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences. Based on Burton's original 1984 B&W short.
Frankenweenie was directed by mastermind Tim Burton, who's brought us Beetlejuice, Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Big Fish, Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd and The Nightmare Before Christmas previously. The screenplay was written by John August (Go, Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Corpse Bride, The Nines) from a story by Tim Burton & Leonard Ripps. Disney is bringing Frankenweenie to theaters everywhere in 3D starting on October 5th later this year. Watch the full theatrical trailer here.
