David Braun, a BFA 3 student in Experimental Animation at CalArts, recently interviewed his idol and fellow CalArtian Tim Burton (Film/Video 79) for MTVu—the largest media network for college students.

Burton, who’s currently promoting his upcoming film Dark Shadows, answered Braun’s questions about animation, highlights in his extensive filmography, as well as some unexpected questions about Burton’s coiffure.

We’ve posted the interview above, and the Dark Shadows trailer below. The film opens on Friday (May 11).

    wonderfully done!

    I am envious: i dream of attending Calarts (currently a junior in high school) and also of meeting Tim Burton… His style differentiates himself from the others and I could easily say Beetlejuice and a nightmare before christmas were my top picks as a small child, and both have kept that status even today.

    but yes, a truly enjoyable video to watch!!!! 😀
