So I was going for more of the scary aspect of this year's contest, which I think came out pretty well. I know that "This is Halloween" has been done many times before, but I tried to take a semi-different approach to this song.

Last year I was invited to do a collaboration to this song for the NG contest but it never ended up being finished. I started over from scratch keeping some basic concepts from my parts and ending up putting all this together in the past 2 weeks, although in those 2 weeks I put as much effort into this as if it would've taken me 2 months on my usual animating schedule.

This is the first real animation I have made in quite sometime (not including a poor 2-day attempt at Pico Day) so I hope that you enjoy this!

Write a review! Ill reply to every single review written.

But you should totally use Jack more, he is the pumkin king after all, the is made fot him....but great video and charming animations ;p

DerajN responds:

yeah I really didn't want to do any Nightmare Before Christmas stuff at all but it kind of specifically mentions Jack in the song so I figured I might as well put him in. I was more trying to make my own thing instead of just copying the Nightmare Before Christmas Movie.

DerajN responds:
