Surprisingly though, there was consensus between all 3 actors that voice overs are significantly easier than actual filming. Atticus notes, however, that the "challenging part of it was that you're not actually recording with other actors." The whole process took about 3 years although they may have had about 10 recording sessions spread out during this time period. Along the same lines, it took Atticus Shaffer a full year of auditioning before he realized he got the role of Edgar "E" Gore.
The part of the interview that cracked all of us up was Charlie Tahn's response on working with Tim Burton. "He's surprisingly normal." Funny, right? Because a genius filmmaker definitely can't be normal...haha! Frankenweenie is the 1st 3D Black and White movie ever, which makes it all so monumental. All 3 actors had watched the original Frankenweenie short that played during auditions. Atticus Shaffer, who you may also know from The Middle, hopes this movie "will inspire a new generation of kids to want to see the old classic films and see where the ideas originated from. And then not lose that part of our, of our history." That's the love of the history of movies for you, folks... It was so clearly evident that these young men had such love for their industry and their work. In fact, both Atticus and Robert want to go into directing and writing in the future. Don't miss history in the making 10/05 when Frankenweenie finally makes it on the big screens!
