Bride and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and for
blockbusters such as Pee-wee's Big Adventure, Batman, Batman Returns,
Planet of the Apes, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Alice in
Wonderland, his most recent film, that was the second

who became a close friend since their film together, musician Danny
Elfman (who has composed for all but five of the films Burton has
directed and/or produced) and domestic partner Helena Bonham Carter.
He also wrote and illustrated the poetry book The Melancholy Death of
Oyster Boy & Other Stories, published in 1997, and a compilation
of his drawings, entitled The Art of Tim Burton, was released in
2009. Burton has directed 14 films as of 2010, and has produced 10 as of
2009. His next films are a film adaptation of soap opera Dark
Shadows, which is slated to begin production in January 2011 and a
remake of his short Frankenweenie, which will be released on October
5, 2012. Description above from the Wikipedia article Tim Burton, licensed
