Directors of Cinema Episode 9: Tim Burton

Directors of Cinema podcast 2Welcome to Directors of Cinema, the podcast highlighting the careers of cinema’s most prominent directors. This week is a very special week for two reasons.

He’s here again, along with host Matt, to discuss the films of Tim Burton. What’s the second reason this week is special? It’s because there’s another guest joining them as well.

Directors of Cinema – Episode 9- Tim Burton

Matt is a 21 year old film buff and recent graduate from The University of Rhode Island. Growing up in a small town in the smallest state, Matt began developing a taste in film and general geekdom at a young age. After years of watching various DC and Marvel animated television shows as a boy, Matt has become quite the afficinado in the realm of comic books. Towards the end of middle school, Matt began delving into the world of film by watching anything he could get his hands on. Nowadays, his tastes range from classic film noir and the mindbending works of David Cronenberg to the latest trends on the independent scene. Don't worry; he's still one for the latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or DC animated adventure. Comics aren't the only source of literature Matt enjoys. He can sometimes be spotted reading the works of Stephen King or even the plays of William Shakespeare. As an aspiring film critic and screenwriter, Matt is always looking for inspiration and new ideas.
