These are a few of the many scuptural contributions made by Norm DeCarlo on Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas.

The relationship that DeCarlo Studio played in the creation and production of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas cannot be overstated.  Both Norm and Bonita were major factors in the look and feel of the film in so many detailed and intricate ways that the list would be tedious to produce.  Norm's sculpture work is in almost every scene and, of course, Bonita's masterful puppet fabrication techniques set the standard for all future stop motion animated films is seen in every frame.
