Tim Burton: Auteur - Day 4


Spent the previous day away as I had to attend meetings and see important people.  I had spent the last day watching Edward Scissorhands and today I am watching Vincent and some of The Nightmare Before Christmas to understand Burton's stylistic approach. More later.

This is one 'Messay Essay' - 1,200 words partly plan, part observation.  Some structure but mostly very loosely connected.  My concentration levels are zero, mainly because of added burdens. Onward, I suppose - I want to see SOME progress.  It doesn't help that I am trying to craft a Burton PP alongside.  i would do it separately, but in forming the PP, it is actually helping me direct the essay.

I do actually feel like I have made some headway.  A LOT of reaaranging and consequential rewriting.  I had a cunning plan, then had to restructure it again - hence the mess.  I think I might be calling it a day soon.  Dinner beckons and I don't think I will be inclined to tie myself to the desk until late.
