He is a celebrated director and producer of Hollywood films, which do not just please the critics with their unique storytelling but also set the cash registers ringing at the Hollywood box office.

Meet Tim Burton, the quirky mind behind much-favourited films like Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, 9 and Dark Shadows, and for grand blockbusters such as Pee-wee's Big Adventure, Batman, Batman Returns, Planet of the Apes, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Alice in Wonderland.

Alice in the Wonderland was the second highest-grossing film of 2010, and the eleventh highest-grossing film of all time.

Tim Burton was born in 1958 in California, and went on to study in the California Institute of the Arts. He started working with the Walt Disney Productions' animation studio. During his stint at Walt Disney, he made his first short, Vincent, a six-minute black-and-white stop motion film based on a poem written by the filmmaker.
