A Third Dimension
Burton chose to shoot the film in 2D and then convert it in 3D. "I didn't see the benefit of shooting in 3D,” he says. "After seeing the conversion job that was done on ‘Nightmare Before Christmas,' I found no reason to do it any other way. We were trying to do it faster and at the end of the day, I didn't see any difference in quality.”

"There isn't a whole lot of poking sticks at the audience or throwing balls out at you, or anything just for the 3D trick,” Ralston says. "It will happen naturally. It's just going to be there. Like having the Cheshire Cat appear, but so he's floating out and above the audience. But not trying to oversell this trick, not trying to be corny.”

The idea of making a film in 3D was, for Burton, one of the main reasons he was drawn to directing "ALICE IN WONDERLAND” in the first place.

"I thought it was intriguing,” says Burton. "It seemed like the right kind of story to do the 3D. I always try to say, ‘Is the right medium for this?' and not just do it because it's a gimmick or it's fashionable now, and it did feel like it was the right kind of material. So seeing it come to life in 3D supports the material. It gives you that kind of ‘out there' feeling that was a very crucial element to the film.”
