The Nightmare Before Christmas Facts:
The most difficult shot was opening a door because of the filmmakers’ dedication to be as true to shooting like live-action as possible, one Nightmare Before Christmas
shot proved especially challenging. When Jack discovers the part of the
forest with pathways to other holiday worlds, he looks longingly at the
Christmas tree door. A close-up
of its shiny golden knob reflects this mournful skeleton as well as the
trees behind him as he advances to open it. Getting the reflection just
right took a great deal of time, care, and attention.
