Things I would like to go to

Tim Burton Exhibition at the MOMA, New York

…the exhibition presents artwork generated during the conception and production of his films, and highlights a number of unrealized projects and never-before-seen pieces, as well as student art, his earliest non-professional films, and examples of his work as a storyteller and graphic artist for non-film projects

Banksy vs Bristol Museum, Bristol

Iga Ueno Ninja Festival

The Iga Ueno Ninja Festival is the annual five-week ninja-themed festival in the Japanese city of Iga (in the former province of Iga), from April 1 to May 6. Almost 30,000 ninja fans travel to Iga (pop. 100,000) for ninja-inspired performances, competitions, and opportunities to practice ninja skills, organized to promote the city. During the festival, passengers on Iga train lines dressed in ninja costumes are given free rides.

Hells fucking yes.

The first trailer for Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland is up.

9

February 4, 2009

9 is an upcoming film by Shane Acker produced by Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov – the trailer came out for this film on Christmas Day but I’ve not really heard anything since:

The original short (below) won quite a few awards, and you can see why.

I really like the isolated feel the short has so I hope I still like the feature length adaptation – either way the character design is just awesome.
