Director: Tim Burton
VINCENT is one of Tim Burtonís earliest directorial works.
The short was filmed while Burton was still an animator at the Walt Disney Animation Studios, where he worked on films such THE FOX AND THE HOUND and THE BLACK CAULDRON. A stop-motion animated film shot entirely in black and white on 16mm film stock, it was based on a poem Burton had written himself. The short film tells the sad tale of Vincent Malloy, a suburban boy who wants to be just like his idol, Vincent Price (who provides narration for the film). It marked Tim Burtonís first teaming with collaborators who would have a great impact on his oeuvre, including Rick Heinrichs, who would go on to design several of Burtonís later films, including SLEEPY HOLLOW and PLANET OF THE APES.
