Movies and Cons

Ok, I admit it. I had not a clue as to who Tim Burton was. Call me ignorant, but I rarely pay any attention to movies, much less who directs them. Probably because I watch so few movies.

Now, I saw the new version (well, new to me) of Alice in Wonderland on the flight to Singapore and adored it. Come to find out – Tim Burton! AMCI (Australian Center for the Moving Image) was hosting a Tim Burton exhibit.

Materials ranged from original drawings, story lines, mock ups and costumes from all of his various productions. Besides the Batmobile, both Maus and I appreciated the three costumes from Alice (Colleen Atwood was the costume designer).

We spent most of the day at Con doing what we normally do – working registration, stuffing tote bags and attending the occasional Kaffee Klatsch (in this case Seanan McGuire).

    Sounds like fun – that poor neglected sock is obviously not getting too much attention! 🙂

    Humph…I don’t pay much attention to movie stuff either, but I DO know Tim Burton, and remain….not a fan. Glad you enjoyed.

    I can’t believe you are in Melbourne! I am going to be there Tuesday and am going to see this exhibition with my kids and the Spunk. I can’t wait! When do you leave?
