We really enjoyed developing this character Mr. Ryzkruski is free-thinking and open-minded — the kind of teacher that is able to break through and make us think in a new way. When Tim designed the puppet, he wanted him to be imposing and intriguing, but also cool and appealing.Check out the clip and the film’s official synopsis below: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORxnfekpHZU[/youtube]
From creative genius Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland, The Nightmare Before Christmas) comes Frankenweenie, a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new ‘leash on life’ can be monstrous.
