the name just screams tim burton

anonymous asked:

Do you ever find yourself getting excited when talking about ParaNorman, Coraline, The Boxtrolls and the up-coming film Kubo with a friend or relative - and suddenly hear those dreadful words; "Oh, that's Tim Burton right? I love Tim Burton's work!" And you just - kinda' gotta' scream a little, inside. Obviously no disrespect to Tim Burton, but Laika and their original directors, writers and producers need a million times more recognition. It's so frustrating.

Friend….. you know the true struggle.

I don’t wanna be rude about it to people who don’t know he has nothing to do with them, and I always resist the urge to explode. Tim Burton is not the only guy who can have his name attached to creepy, stop-motion things. Sometimes people don’t believe me when I say Burton has nothing to do with Coraline (and they argue, even), and I need to calmly bring up several internet sources that say he’s not related to Coraline, ParaNorman, The BoxTrolls, or Kubo.

I partially blame the Coraline marketing campaign that said ‘from the director of The Nightmare Before Christmas’ in every trailer, tv commercial, and poster. People automatically associate TNBC with Tim Burton, even though the real director was Henry Selick.

Maybe I should get it tattooed on my forehead that he has nothing to do with our four lovely Laika films… or make an informational video :’D
