Tim Burton: Auteur - Week 2 (and a bit)



It is just as well that I am doing Burton, as I would have become even more bored than I am now.  It always happens when I remain too long on a project.  I can't help but feel that the seminar paper lack a LOT of stuff.  I spoke to a former year 2 student, who said she had the same problem with Stanley Kubrick.  I just think that I need more techy terms for film development (that I probably should have researched more on it all - but because of circumstance, I didn't).

2,010 words but a LOT needs rewriting.

*sigh*

I have been at this sporadically all day.  I need to go back to my drawing board. 2,500 words, way over count, haven't dicussed screen angle or shots and feel like this is a bloody huge mess.

*bah*

At long last, I can see progress.  I restructured the essay on my board, gutted it down on a fresh document and block copied chunks over.  it is looking a hell of a lot better and I think I will expand and pare back where necessary. I can breathe out a bit now - it also means that the PP will look tidier too :-)
