My essay Vincent and Victor: Two Early Shorts by Tim Burton has just been published in the Winter 2009-2010 edition of Splice. The text examines the shorts as a point of origin of Burton's auteuristic traits, critiquing visual style and elements on influence throughout the two short films. As I state in the opening paragraph to the text...

"Vincent Malloy is a seven year old boy with long black, wiry hair who fantasises that he is Vincent Price. He also imagines that he conducts arcane electrical experiments on his dog in a castle perched high on a craggy hill and dreams of dipping his aunt in a vat of molten wax. Another boy, Victor Frankenstein, is older than the first. He resurrects his deceased dog after it has been knocked down by a car and together they cause havoc in the middle-class suburbia in which they live. These are two different boys but both of them grew up into one man, Tim Burton."
