Open letter to Ray Harryhausen -
It was a delightful letter from you, Mr. Ray Harryhausen, thanking me for my “enthusiastic and kind letter” delivered to you while in Los Angeles. I couldn’t believe. That letter is a precious treasure that I kept framed for so many years, like my dream of doing animation.

Colorist Rob Pizzey, using Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve at Company 3 in London, worked with Burton and cinematographer Peter Sorg to apply an intricate, high-contrast color-grade that ensured the characters pop out from their surroundings.
