Overview

As the director of such blockbusters as Batman and Edward Scissorhands, and the producer of the modern classic The Nightmare Before Christmas, Tim Burton has earned a deserved reputation as one of today's most creative and innovative filmmakers. The New York Times calls his work "dazzling," and Entertainment Weekly hails him as America's "pop visionary." Now in this deluxe companion volume to his cinematic interpretation of the classic tale of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman, we go beyond the sets and into the mind's eye of the director, to see how Burton's incomparable vision comes to life on film. Featuring production art, storyboards, costume designs, and set sketches, we see Burton's concepts transformed into screen magic.

More than just a look into the making of a motion picture, this is a collection of film artwork that is, in its own right, a major artistic statement. Drawings and paintings from the production show the depth of artistry that goes into the creation of Burton's world. His stunning vision of neo-Gothic nineteenth-century America comes alive: the foggy valleys of Sleepy Hollow, the cobbled streets of old New York City, and the menace and terror of the Headless Horseman. This volume proves that his vision not only resonates on the screen but on the canvas and sketchbook as well. The masterly work that accompanies the dramatic script demonstrates Burton's awesome creative prowess -- as both an artist and a major force in American cinema.

Read an Excerpt

1 EXT. CITY STREETS -- NIGHT

Empty cobblestone streets are bordered by stately buildings. A rapidly CLANGING BELL breaks the silence from afar.

INSERT TITLE:

New York City
1799
TWO CONSTABLES clamor around a corner, lanterns held high, listening. They disappear down an alleyway.

2 EXT. CITY WATERFRONT -- NIGHT

ELSEWHERE, piers border the Hudson. The BELL is LOUDER here. The two constables arrive, searching, pistols drawn.

CONSTABLE ONE
Where are you?!
MAN'S VOICE O.S.
Here...! Over here!

The constables hurry to the river's edge...

Down an embankment, the MAN, another constable, has his back to us. He's waist deep in dark water, throwing aside his ALARM BELL, struggling to pull something from the murk...

MAN
I need your help with this.

Constable Two and Constable One move forward, wary.

CONSTABLE ONE
Constable Crane? Ichabod Crane...is that you?

The MAN turns. Meet ICHABOD CRANE, handsome, eyes piercing but nervous and unsettled.

ICHABOD
None other, and not only me...
returns to lifting
I have found something...

Ichabod drags a bloated MALE CORPSE out from the water. He backs away, shaken, looks to the constables...

ICHABOD CONT'D
...which was lately a man.

3 INT. CITY WATCHHOUSE, JAIL -- NIGHT

In a dank, cavernous room, the distinguished HIGH CONSTABLE lifts a blanket off the corpse in a wheelbarrow manned by Constable Two. Constable One and Ichabod are near, watching.

HIGH CONSTABLE
Burn it.
CONSTABLE ONE
Yes, sir.

Constable Two wheels the corpse down a RAMP to another room.

ICHABOD
Just a moment, if I may...we do not yet know the cause of death.
HIGH CONSTABLE
When you find 'em in the river, cause of death is drowning.
ICHABOD
Possibly so if there is water in the lungs, but...by pathology we might determine whether or not he was dead when he went into the river.
HIGH CONSTABLE
Cut him up? Are we heathens? Let him rest in peace -- in one piece as according to God and the New York Department of Health.

Ichabod is about to protest, but stops himself, frustrated.

Two THUGGISH CONSTABLES -- different ones -- bring in a bleeding SEMICONSCIOUS MAN.

HIGH CONSTABLE CONT'D
What happened to him?
THUGGISH CONSTABLE
Nothing, sir. Arrested for burglary.

The constables throw him against the bars of the slammer while one of them opens the cage door. With their leather truncheons, the cops beat their prisoner into the cage and lock him in.

HIGH CONSTABLE
Good work...

Ichabod hurries to follow his two constables and the corpse.
