Henry Selick

Henry Selick is an American stop-motion director, writer, production designer and producer who is most know for directing James and the Giant Peach, Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline.

Selick’s interest and fascination with stop-motion and animation started at a young age when he saw the stop-motion animation, The Adventures of Price Achmed. Although he is most well known for his commercial endeavors, Selick has a strong body of artistic works the broader public is not as familiar with.
