Hey guys, I’ve been getting a lot of new followers recently and I wanna say hi and thank you for following me! My name is Tera but you can call me Left! I’m 24 years old and I’m living in LA with my best friend/fiancee Marcia. <3 I work outside of the arts industry, but…

LETS PLAY A GAME. It’s called: Who directed it TIM BURTON or HENRY SELICK
We’ll start with the 2009 Laika film Coraline based on the novel by Neil Gaiman. Do you know who directed it? Burton or Selick?
Did you guess yet?
If you guessed Henry Selick, you would be correct. Tim Burton actually had absolutely nothing to do with Coraline at all in anyway ever. Reminder: Tim Burton has NOTHING to do with Coraline. At all. But that was an easy one. Let’s go to the Walt Disney Pictures adaptation of Roald Dahl’s novel, James and the Giant Peach next.
Think you got it? Are you sure? Better double check…
Oh, look. It’s Henry Selick again! Tim Burton actually interacted with this project, though only as a producer. Bet that was tricky… Next one! Let’s go to the Disney/Touchstone Pictures film Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Have you guessed it correctly? Have you really?
Yep that’s right. Even Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas was directed by Henry Selick. Though Burton wrote the poem and created the characters in which Nightmare was based he didn’t have much interaction with the project beyond that. At the time he had already signed off to direct the film Batman Returns and did not want to be involved with the “painstakingly slow process of stop-motion animation.”
Looks like it was a trick quiz. But now you know Henry Selick, whom people rarely know of is responsible for many of the most well known stop-motion animated films. The more you know!
This isn’t even being qeued. This is just being reblogged, because some of you still don’t understand who directed Coraline.
Burton didn’t even have a TANGENTIAL connection to Coraline but because it was advertised as “from the director of Nightmare Before Christmas” and people think Burton directed Nightmare (or even wrote the script or did much of anything but visit the set off and on) they still equate Coraline with him.
The same thing happens to “9” because people don’t get what “produced by” means.
FUCKING THANK YOU.
I believe the success of these titles is falls singly upon Henry selick’s involvement. and it pisses me off to no end when people just attribute the qualities that made those movies special [ mostly nightmare/james and the giant peach ] with tim burton
It’s selicks’ touches. his level of detail in cloth. his love for strange warped metal surfaces/blades and insects that always seem to be prevalent in his works that sort of attracted me/wow’ed me in those movies
I mean look what happened when burton DID do a stop-motion title. corpse bride. It was a nice movie, sorta okay plot. but the visual style was kinda crap. other than the contrast between the world of the living/dead everything was just sorta smoothed out and bland design wise :\

“Wrong Century” by Tomas Kucerovsky
the look of wistfulness on her face just punches me straight in the heart
this is literally my favorite piece that ever comes up on tumblr and if you want me to change my mind well then goOD LUCK WITH THAT
that painting called ‘the rape of the daughters of Leucippus’, Those men are kidnapping those women. Whoever made this was not thinking hard about the audience they’re trying to appeal too
But they’re kidnapping fat women, not the typical, modern-aged skinny as a rail woman. Back then, fat was desired because you were considered RICH and HEALTHY. Today, the standards have flipped, making fat people POOR and UNHEALTHY.
No one wants to kidnap and rape a fat chick, for the sake of reproduction of having healthy offspring. Not in this day and age.
