I love Danny Elfman's music, and this adaptation is an excellent one.

"Did he create the visuals using the game?"

That's a good question. If so, it was done on high-end hardware with some visual tweaks to the settings (like what Dead End Thrills does) and...maybe a mod for machinima?

You know, it's weird. For whatever reason, I can sit back and patiently gobble up any media even tangentially related to Valve IPs, because they're just that good. They're like the Pixar of game studios without even a Cars to sully their legacy.

Even as someone who is kind of indifferent to Nightmare Before Christmas I loved this. Thank you for posting.

Particularly excellent. Thanks.

(My favorite Portal 2 fan-made music is still Liz Baseman's rendition of the turret opera, though.)

Oh, that's just wonderful.

I actually kind of made real-life squee noises when watching it.

I cannot being to imagine how much work that must have taken, and it is delightful.
