Burton on 3D
Popular Mechanics spoke with Tim Burton. The director had a few words on 3D filmmaking on Alice in Wonderland: "I felt with the techniques that we were using—live action but manipulating it, plus the other elements we're adding in—[converting the movie] gave us more freedom to get the depth layers we wanted in the time frame we're dealing with," Burton tells PM. "But in the Alice world—the shrinking and the growing and the spatial stuff—3D helps with the experience."
