The Art of Frankenweenie

Disney is launching a touring "The Art of Frankenweenie" exhibition in advance of "Frankenweenie"'s October 5 release. The exhibition will start at CineEurope in Barcelona (June 18-21) and Comic-Con in San Diego (July 11-15), and will continue on to France, England, Japan, Mexico and Canada. Here's details on the exhibition:

The Art of Frankenweenie Exhibition captures the magic of the filmmaking process and gives audiences an exclusive glimpse into the stop-motion animation process brought to life by visionary filmmaker Tim Burton.  From original sketches drawn by Burton, to extensive props, sets and puppets, the exhibition showcases the artistic detail and vision that has gone into bringing this heartwarming tale to the big screen in 2012’s most highly anticipated animated movie. The Art of Frankenweenie Exhibition delves into the world of a boy who, inspired by science and the love of his dog, brings his beloved pet back from the dead.

Here's a sneak peak.

Also watch the Martin Woutisseth video below to catch up on the Tim Burton catalog. This animated short film gives a quick review of the filmmaker's gothic oeuvre via fantastic graphics and Danny Elfman-inspired themes.  The best reminder of the vibe from each movie?  The morbid taglines, like 2005's "Corpse Bride": There has been a grave misunderstanding, or the intro to 1990's "Edward Scissorhands": The story of an uncommonly gentle man.
