His real name is Timothy Walter Burton and he is known for his horror and fantasy film. Tim Burton is an American film director, producer, animator, artist, and also writer. There are a few film that were directed and produce by him for example Edward Scissorhand (1990), The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), and Corpse Bride (2005), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) and Alice in Wonderland (2010).
Tim Burton is one of those directors who has an easily identifiable visual style which is revel in gothic imagery. From the characters, the props, the houses and cities where the films take place are sculpted in an exaggerated, almost cartoonish way to emphasize “gothic” features. One the examples of this type of style is the costume and makeup for Edward Scissorhands, who looks like he belongs in some sort of creepy goth punk rock band. Not only is the character himself gothic, but he lives in an old gothic mansion.
