Vincent

Vincent is a 1982 stop-motion short film written, designed and directed by Tim Burton and Rick Heinrichs.

The film was narrated by Burton’s childhood idol Vincent Price (who was an actor well known for his distinctive voice and serio-comic attitude in a series of horror films made in the latter part of his career) and marked the beginning of a friendship between them that lasted until Price’s death in 1993. Burton credits the experience as one of the most shaping experiences of his life. Vincent Price later said that the film was “the most gratifying thing that ever happened. It was immortality — better than a star on Hollywood Boulevard.”
