Now, this was an amazing movie! I was flipping through Netflix a few weeks ago and decided to check out this movie. I haven't seen it for 20 years and watching it again really brought back the awesome memories of my childhood. The stop-motion used in this movie was just astonishing and it was nothing I had ever seen before in my life. 1993 was a great year for movies and I'm glad I was able to experience it growing up.
The time and effort put into a movie like this was just amazing. Of course, as a kid, I had no idea how long it took or how much effort was put into a production like this. I was reading about the film and found out that it started production in 1991. Two years in the making for just a 76 minute film! I love movies like this because it's nice to see something other than CGI or computer effects and just focus on real-life art. I took a class back in elementary school that was a clay mation class and we would make our own little videos with a Gumby-like effect and it was so crude! Mind you, this was just elementary school and it was very lame, but this is just how it all started. It started from something like that and if you have the time and the money, you can make something like The Nightmare Before Christmas. If you haven't seen this movie, SEE IT NOW!!!
