Mr. Will-W. & Tim Burton
A Man of many, many, many talents. Tim Burton is officially in Toronto to launch his career retrospective at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Beginning Friday, November 26, 2010, the New York Museum of Modern Art will be launching an Exhibit at the TIFF Bell Lightbox which includes Burton's drawings, props and more memorabilia from his celebrated career.  A career which has seen nominations for Awards of the Golden Globe and Academy variety.

But that's not all. Torontonians will have their chance to meet the Man responsible for classics such as Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, Alice in Wonderland 3-D, Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Burton will be appearing at the TIFF Bell Lightbox tomorrow between 4 to 5:30 PM, for an Autograph Session. He will only be signing copies of The Art of Tim Burton (Leah Gallo), Burton on Burton (Tim Burton), Tim Burton - Masters of Cinema Series (Aurelien Ferenczi) and Tim Burton Dark Horse Journals. Candid photos will be taken but there will be no posed Photographs with him; there will be a maximum two Autographs per person. Click here for more details.

Tim Burton's TIFF Bell Lightbox Display
I had the pleasure of meeting Burton earlier this evening on his way to a Cocktail Reception for his upcoming Exhibit and although not a Man of many words, he was v. kind to stop and pose for a Snap and signed a Photo for me too, before thanking me kindly for my support. Earlier in the day, I stopped by at the Lightbox and saw their new display for the upcoming Exhibit and it's looking all sorts of amazing. Can't wait to see the goods!

If you're heading out tomorrow, all the best.  You will not be disappointed! Get there early.
