Wes Anderson returns to the big screen come 23 March with his latest stop-motion animation Isle of Dogs .
Fox Searchlight Pictures has released a trio of short videos that not only brings you face-to-face with the film’s adorable canine characters, but also reveals more about what goes on behind the scenes.
The first video, featured below, sheds light on the creative process, where animators painstakingly bring the film’s vision to life. This includes the very meticulously hand-sculpted “replacement face system” for each human character, as well as having to lip sync the canine characters by physically opening and closing their mouths.
The second video focuses on cast interviews where you can get better acquainted with each character’s personality. The final clip brings these interviews into virtual reality, with 360-degree features that further discloses what goes on behind the cameras.
All in all, 27 animators and 10 assistants worked on the Isle of Dogs’ production. Their names are featured in the final image below.
Isle of Dogs comprises a star-studded cast including Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Bryan Cranston, Scarlett Johansson, and Tilda Swinton.
This isn’t the first 360-degree behind-the-scenes video that’s been seen recently. Earlier this month, 20th Century Fox released a similar clip for Hugh Jackman’s The Greatest Showman .
