Tim Burton's "A Pirate"

happy birthday pirateclock


TIM BURTON: It was nice working with Johnny Depp for the 12th time in my career. What was great about this film, was that Johnny already had his pirate persona. All we needed to do was really bring out the paleness of his skin and the brightness of his eyes using more mascara and eyeliner than what would have been necessary in shooting the regular Pirates series.

JOHNNY DEPP: Yeah, you know, playing Jack once again, you know, was really an honor, you know, now that I'm working with Tim again, you know, I really feel like I'm at home.

HELENA BONHAM CARTER: Tim is really just a genius. I love him to death.

DANNY ELFMAN: Well working with Tim again was a real pleasure. I mean I knew I had to do something big for this. Tim came up to me about 7 years ago and he said: "hey, I need you to make me this soundtrack." You know with his genius, it's just so overwhelming. I looked at the title of the film and that was it, i was sold. I worked on this for years on and off, I didnt care if the movie was going to be made or not - I just HAD to make this for Tim.

Simply amazing

The artistry found in this piece is truly overwhelming. Burton really captures the true face of humanity and the despair of the Pirate. I can't wait for the dvd release, so I may hear the directors commentary. Bravo!

ClockRadio responds:

The DVD is LOADED with fun facts, behind the scenes views on the MS Paint animators hard at work, and EXCLUSIVE interviews with TONS of people. Check out the NG store soon.

I was told they'd be right next to the Foamy DVDs!!!
