Or at least, a former animator:
Director Tim Burton will head from Wonderland to the French Riviera in May to preside over the jury at the 63rd Festival de Cannes, organizers said Tuesday ...
"It's the first time an artist whose origins are in animation will preside over the jury of the Festival de Cannes," Jacob said. He added: "We hope his sweet madness and gothic humor will pervade the Croisette, bringing Christmas to all. Christmas and Halloween."
This means that at long last, mainstream filmmakers have clasped animation to their full and capacious breasts.
(It couldn't mean anything else, could it?)
