The following details are for the Dark Shadows inspired contest currently open on YouTube!

Below are filmographies for Helena Bonham Carter as an actor, Tim Burton as a director, and Johnny Depp as an actor. I hope these lists help inspire contest entries for the Dark Shadows contest. More details on prizes will follow shortly, along with detailed rules. 

To update, there are three categories: HBC, Tim Burton, and Johnny Depp, with one winner for each and at least one grand prize winner, from any of the three categories. There were originally four prizes, including one for the trio. As a change, consider Tim Burton films containing one or both Helena and Johnny as wild cards, eligible for entry under either of the three, but please remember to specify where you want each video/tutorial entered: Helena, Tim, or Johhny. Shh...there will also be a few special prizes. Think very glamorous honorable mentions! :)

As always, this contest is open internationally. A deadline will not be revealed at this point, as that date is contingent upon the performance and run of Dark Shadows in US and UK box offices... so get busy. Enter as many times as you'd like, and please remember to mind the rules.

That said, let's get listing!

These are not exhaustive lists. Feel free to use other titles.
Remember, when entering a category under an actor, your tutorial does not necessarily have to be inspired directly by his or her character. You may draw emphasis from any film featuring Johnny or Helena or directed (or produced) by Tim. Please be sure to specify your category of entry, and best of luck!
