Tim Burton had nothing to do with the film of "Coraline"; it was made
(written and directed) by Henry Selick, who directed the Tim Burton-produced
"Nightmare Before Christmas", which is why somehow Burton is getting all the
credit for "Coraline" (and, indeed, the Selick-directed "Nightmare...") Neil
has written about the film extensively on his blog, and has been very
involved involved in the film's making, although not in any formal capacity.
And he's delighted with it.
