Added DiffLines:

* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants: All of the songs were written, one-by-one, before there was a screenplay. Tim Burton would pitch each part of the story to Danny Elfman, who would write a song based on what Burton would tell him and sketches he'd show him. They later claimed that they wrote it this way because they had no other idea where to start with such an unusual story.

Added DiffLines:

* CreatorBreakdown: Music/DannyElfman, who at the time was still the frontman of Music/OingoBoingo, suffered a nervous breakdown at the end of the film's production. Unlike most films he scores, which only require him to work for three weeks, he was on this project for two years, and eventually cracked under the pressure of being a full-time film composer and the front man for a rock band. He and Tim Burton had a brief falling out and he was forced to break up his band in order to focus full-time on movies. Burton was even nice enough to [[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain never to speak of the ordeal again]] when all was said and done.


Added DiffLines:

* RealitySubtext: Jack Skellington is the king of his own empire but desperate to move on to something new and exciting. His songs are written and performed by Music/DannyElfman, who at the time was the leader of [[Music/OingoBoingo an acclaimed rock band]], but was desperate to move permanently into his new and exciting career as a film composer.

* DoingItForTheArt: Took over three years to film, utilizing up over a dozen ''sound stages'', a phenomenal amount of space. It was also a technical innovation: a special motion-control camera was created to allow for more sweeping cinematography.

** Disney moving the film under its [[Creator/TouchstonePictures Touchstone label]] rather then releasing it under the "Walt Disney Pictures" label due to the dark content. Future re-releases, both home and theatrical, would bring it back under the Disney name, after the Disney brand began to expand their demographic starting with the PG-13 ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' series.
