Different on the inside Though ‘The Nightmare before Christmas’ is widely credited to be directed by Tim Burton and appears to be, but actually it wasn’t. Known for his strange and eerie tales, Tim Burton stands out at Disney. Using Dr. Seuss-like childishness, along with the creepiness of Vincent Price, Burton finds several ways to give children an array of positive messages. Tim Burton uses a contrast of lighting keys, long shots and close ups in ‘Charlie in the Chocolate Factory’ and ‘Edward Scissorhands’ in order to communicate of how things aren’t always what they appear to be. High and Low lighting is used to show the variance of how things look and how they are.
From Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Tim has the camera looking up top at the factory and then swoops down and looks around the village. He does this to set the tone of that specific movie. He wants to show that the movie will be a little darker than it may seem. Likewise in Edward Scissorhands, he had the camera swoop in through the neighborhood to show how colorful it was. The movie seemed happy until it gets to Edward who is made from all dark material and not a very jolly person.
Not to mention the background props, in general, were very well done in 3D as they made the haunting yet funny Christmas movie come to life and distract you from the uncanny valley character animations. When it was released the made $162,800,000.00 in the box office which is great, they got over their budget and it is considered a popular Christmas Film. When the reviews came out most people thought it was creepy and weird that the characters didn 't have names, it was hard to relate to the main character as it didn 't have much of a background story for him to lead up to him not believing in Santa and more of a story for the shy kid. But it was seen as visually stunning which helped take away from the uncanniness of the characters. Since the film never properly investigates why hero boys beliefs in Santa is dwindling the revelation of Santa 's existence is hollow which also adds to the uncanniness, especially when all the evidence beforehand did not convince him
The Christmas Carol is a story that was later created into a movie. It was originally written by Charles Dickens. He created The Christmas Carol to show that greed is wrong and to tell the people what Christmas truly is. The characters in this story are Ebenezer Scrooge, Jacob Marley, Fred(Nephew), Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, and the three spirits of Christmas( Past, Present, and Future). In this story Scrooge learns how to be a good person and what Christmas is all about.
The pairing of several melodic phrases throughout the composition adds to the sense of chaos and turbulence. The dramatic contrast of dynamics between themes, pitch, chromatic harmonies and discords used in Night on Bald Mountain are still used in musical scores for horror movies. I remember hearing this music in Disney’s Fantasia and thinking, “Boy, do I need to run.” It still has that same effect. In the movie, Chernabog, the evil god, appears in the final segment of the film and summons spirits around the mountain. There’s not another score of music that could perfectly illustrate the final scene of Disney’s Fantasia than Night of Bald Mountain.
Worf “Who censored Roger Rabbit?”, the plot is centered around a wildly emotional Roger Rabbit going through a tough time in life. The world of animated cartoons meet the real human world, in shiny and wild Hollywood. It’s a place where Dumbo can fly around the blue sky, working for peanuts, Donald and Daffy Duck play piano duels, with one of them ending up bashing the piano on the other’s head in one of the film’s high point scenes, and where Roger has a problem seeing birds, instead of stars. Does this seem confusing to you? Well it gets even weirder and loonier.

When he then shows us the inside it is run down and sparsely lit but it has the most loving, wise, and caring characters. Protagonist characters are not usually displayed to be living in such rundown low conditions but Burton uses this to his advantage to depict his message of don’t judge a book by it’s cover. He uses the dark lighting in the house continually and it helps emphasize how poor his family is while showing you with subtle high key lighting around the characters that they are good people. He also uses high key
