How did they do that? Helena Bonham Carter REALLY looked like she was burning. I'm thinking animatronics. I don't see how it could be CGI but maybe I'm wrong. It was a pretty impressive effect.
Sweeney Todd, Mrs' Lovett's demise?

My issues of Cinefex are still packed up from moving, but I recall that they shot Carter's performance first, then shot a similarly proportioned puppet that was on fire, and puppetteered it to match her movements. Then it was a bunch of 2d work to integrate it and add the burn effects on her skin.
