The Nightmare Before Christmas Title Sequence


"What if The Nightmare Before Christmas had a Netflix style title sequence?" I created this title sequence as an answer to that question and an homage to one of the greatest animated films of all time. This is one of my favorite films, and last Halloween I thought it would be fun to recreate that world in 3D and really spend time creating very tactile feeling textures and models that feel like they're actually hand sculpted clay. I hope this stirs as much of a sense of nostalgia in you as it did for me.
