Tim Burton retrospective at MoMA

Earlier this week I attended the press preview of the upcoming MoMA Tim Burton retrospective exhibit, which opens Sunday, 22 November 2009. The exhibit is a showcase of his work from childhood to the present.

There are paintings, sketches, figurines, sculptures, photography, video, storyboards, and props from his movies. MoMA did an excellent job of encompassing all aspects of his work. I've been a fan of his since I first saw Pee Wee's Big Adventure, but it wasn't until Beetlejuice that I truly saw his genius. The exhibit was sponsored by the Syfy channel, which I enjoy as well.

Here are some of my photos from the exhibit. If you're in New York City, you definitely have to check it out. It's open until April 2010. I left the exhibit very inspired and I definitely plan to see it again.

Tim Burton gave some remarks at the press preview, mostly just to say thanks. I've included that, and some other footage I shot, in this little video I put together. This was shot on my Canon Powershot SX-1 IS.

Here's an official video by MoMA about the exhibit.
