Here is a video I found that my dad recorder back in 1999. I was teaching my grandfather, who is sadly not longer with us, and my grandmother how to sing ‘This Is Halloween’ from A Nightmare Before Christmas. I guess it shows you the influence that film had on my life. Looking back on this movie… I can really see myself sort of morphing into a film director, as I demanded my dad to maneuver around and teaching my grandma to sing. I think in my mind, I felt as though I was directing and writing a big Hollywood movie and it felt like I was at home. Although, I still was a little shy. I named it The Halloween Song because that was what my dad wrote on the VHS-C tape that this movie was on.
Note: Please excuse the ‘venation blind’ distortion of the video. I’m working on trying to get rid of it but if you play it in full screen… it should distort as much.
