“There was one moment, and it happened in school. I had a big final exam–we were supposed to write a 20-page report on this book about Houdini [Harry Houdini]. I probably would have loved reading it, but I didn’t, so I just decided to make a little super-8 movie based on it. I tied myself to the railroad tracks and all that. I mean, this is kid stuff, but it impressed the teacher, and I got an A. And that was maybe my first turning point, when I said, ‘Yeah, I wouldn’t mind being a filmmaker.’ “

Tim Burton, American filmmaker, producer, and writer, with movies such as Edward Scissorhands, Batman, Beetlejuice, and Planet of the Apes.
