Let us pay our due respects to the man who brought us this wonderful movie. For without him, it would never have happened.

And that man, is Henry Selick. I do this, since so many people still think
Timmy was the one who directed TNBC, all respect to Tim, but he was only on set for 2 weeks! For a project that took about 3 years.

It's quite a shame really, he never gets any credit. His movies havn't been all that successful since then, since no one really knows who he is.

My thanks goes to you, Mr.Selick, for bringing this vision of beauty to film.

Hurray for Henry Selick,without you,TNBC or CB would never be made.(Since he's a director of slow-motion animation)

So that makes timmy a man who basically was raised off of other people's work?

Huzzah, Henry Selick! For without him, I would still be thinking that Tim was important in the making of this film...

So in other words...Tim is taking credit for something he didn't do?

Well, he did write the original poem, but Selick and his crew did everything else!

No, that's not what I'm saying at all. Fans of the movie give Henry any credit. It's always "Oh, I love Tim Burton so much forwhat he did in Nightmare Before Christmas."

Although Tim made the original poem, it was a much sadder story, leaving Jack in depression and no answer to his call of emptiness. I much prefer the movie.

Whaddaya mean he deserves credit!? I think he deserves a full section on this forum, just like Tim Burton has!

Now, that was a funny one! (Other than TNBC and James and the Giant Peach, that was my first Selick film I EVER watched!)

I had no idea that Tim was on the set of TNBC for only two weeks. That really shocks me.

Props to Selick

Three cheers for Henry Selick!

Yeah, basically Burton came up with the money, the general ideas, and specifics about certain details. He trusted Selick with the rest of his vision, and the task of being able to direct the animators and everyone else in the studio.

Something else Selick did, that not many people know about, was pushing Disney's budget. Apparently Disney/Touchstone didn't originally throw much money at the project. Selick basically took what they gave him, produced some of the fantastic animation that we see today, and the approched the higher-ups... he showed them what was done, and pretty much said "by the way, if you want more of this quality, you'll need to send us more money." So Disney had to choose between tossing away a film that was turning out better than expected, or coughing up more dough.

Does it matter whose idea it was if you loved the movie that much?
