Gallery Revamp: Part 1

Well, first, let me explain: this website was created back in 2004, when we was lacking an online archive with Winona information (specially being in a very complicated period of her life and career when fans couldn’t get proper news that was not gossips). Despite having revamped the gallery once or twice, we’re still lacking a lot, including better organization.

Last week I was browsing around, and saw we still have a lot of MQ sized pictures, some tagged pictures, duplicated pictures, and mostly pictures I collected wasn’t still added in our archive. So I decided to work a little bit for a change, and complete our archive the best I can.

I will be redoing our entire public appearances category. Will remove all pictures and re-add, replacing for HQ/untagged pictures. Some, of course, will remain in small sizes because, as I said, the website is old and probably we won’t find them online anymore to replace, but some new/exclusive ones will also be added.

The first batch contains over 700 HQ pictures covering the years between 1987-1992. Some pictures are really exclusive on the quality we’re posting, so enjoy!

A look back at “Edward Scissorhands” 25 years after its release

A look back at “Edward Scissorhands” 25 years after its release

The Huffington Post marked the 25 years old release of Edward Scissorhand (that’s being re-released via restored, special-edition Blu-Ray) in a phone chat with screenwriter Caroline Thompson and production designer Bo Welch. On the chat they talked how was the approach with Tim Burton, how they dealt with shooting in a real neighborhood, and how was to deal with the studio back then.

On crafting the story:

Thompson: “Tim had just done ‘Pee-wee’s Big Adventure’ and I had written a novel that was sort of an angrier, more adolescent precursor — a ‘Frankenstein’-style story — to ‘Edward Scissorhands,’ and we were represented by the same agency. The agents didn’t know what to do with him and they didn’t know what to do with me, so they introduced us. We had lunch together and we immediately felt a bond and became very good friends. Tim told me about a drawing he had made in high school of a character who had scissors instead of hands and I said, ‘Stop right now. I kind of know exactly what to do with that.’ And three weeks later, I gave him a 70-page prose treatment version of what actually was very close to the movie that we made.”

On adding to Tim Burton’s aesthetic:

Welch: “I had done ‘Beetlejuice’ with Tim, which was a learning experience for me, so by the time I did ‘Edward Scissorhands’ with Tim, I totally got his aesthetic. I’m there basically to serve his vision of the film. Tim draws very well, so mainly he’d draw characters. I remember, early on, looking at the drawing of Edward Scissorhands that he had done, and like all of his drawings, it ended up looking just like the character looks in the film, more or less. I looked at those as my cue on where to go design-wise, but in reading the script, I’d read about where Edward lives and where he comes from and his adjacency to a model suburban neighborhood. And I asked, ‘So these two things that are so different are going to coexist in the same film?’ And Tim goes, ‘Yes!’ First I designed where Edward lives, and then we scouted neighborhoods, by photographs, all over the U.S. looking for new suburbs. We landed on Florida because it just looked more graphic and it had interesting skies. Those two elements, I think, create kind of a friction next to one another. That’s the magic of that.”

On writing Edward:

Thompson: “I based the character of Edward Scissorhands on a combination of my dog and Tim. It was a love letter to Tim, really. The character was based on a dog that I had who was so ridiculously present that if she had had the physiological ability I swear she could have talked. And if you examine Edward, that’s what he’s like. He’s this dog that’s like, ‘What do you need? Here I am.’ Somebody once counted the number of words that he says in the script and I can’t recall it precisely, but I think it’s something south of 150 words. He’s basically a nonverbal character. He’s a beautiful, wild-eyed dog. Johnny nailed my dog.”
