24 times for each second of the completed
film.
They my in more a character. we a picture, more the character, we a
and so on.
That consisted of roughly 110, 000 frames.
One minute of the movie required an entire
week of filming.
And the movie therefore took more than three
years to complete.

There are as many as so individual
characters, with three or tour duplicates each.
Each puppet had an armature inside I,

This is one of the many reasons The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my all-time favorite movies. It took so much effort to create something so wonderful and dear to my heart, and every time I watch this movie, I thank everyone who was a part of making it.

Every stop-motion animation is a bitch to make and requires much dedication.

Paranorman, Coraline, all the Aardman stop-motion pictures (Wallace & Gromit, Chicken Run), an that's from the top of my head.

Nightmare Before Christmas is cool and all, but all that can be said about it can be said about the genre as a whole.

Another genre that requires a ******* of work is the traditional animation - I think that a 2h movie can be for 5+ years in production, idk how the **** Disney did manage to create Little Mermaid in 1989, Beauty & the Beast in 1991, Aladdin in 1992 and Lion King in 1994. They needed an army of artists.

This is also the reason why stop-motions are so rare and Princess and The Frog is most likely the last traditionally animated Disney movie.

My 3 year old, who has only seen the movie about 5 times, knows every word to the 'This Is Halloween' song. Nothing melts my heart more than listening to her sing it. It's 						*******					 awesome!

I've been in love with this movie since I was an infant.   
In high school, I studied the film's stop-motion techniques and used them in my Senior Exit Project.   
I can  spend forever discussing just this one movie.   
   
Just for the sake of it being related, I do make Nightmare Before Christmas (and Nightmare related) gifs and images if anyone is interested in looking through or using them:

Redline (2009) was pretty impressive. It took 7 years to animate and had over 100,000 hand drawn frames. Plus it was the director Yukiko Koike, debut film.

Why is this getting so much love? Its an animation. All animated films have to do this i.e. Wallace and Gromit.

You know, considering he's a skeleton, it'd be reasonable for Jack to not blink at all...
