Timothy Gray wants to be just like Tim Burton when he grows up.

TiM from Ken Turner on Vimeo

I found this wonderful mixed media video on Vimeo, if you like Tim Burton movies you'll love this. It's written, designed and directed by Ken Turner from Toronto, Canada.

Ken Turner graduated in 2007 from Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, and while going to school had much success with his film "Umbrella Boy", which was directed by Andrew Ross and mentored by Ricardo Curtis of House of Cool. (A full house animation production studio with a portfolio consisting of works such as that fairytale ING commercial, and Despicable Me) "Umbrella Boy" won 2nd place at the Ottawa International Animation Festival in 2006. Since then his talents have been featured on the front pages of Cartoon Brew and StrutYourReel, and he has directed other films such as, "Attack of the Giant Vegetable Monsters", which won him a Aniboom Award in 2007 and then Best Online Short in the  Jackson Hole Film Festival, Online Short Film Competition, in 2008.

Most currently, he has written and published three books, "A Night at the Movies", "Eye Candy Volume #1: The Village Idioms" and "Eye Candy Volume #2: Apples & Idioms". As of August 2010 he was working as a character designer and character poser for a flash show called "Ugly Americans at Cuppa Coffee Studios; which you can see more about at his blog.
