How The Puppets From ‘Isle Of Dogs’ Were Made –
Fox Searchlight shared this facinating featurette on the making of the canine and human puppets from director Wes Anderson’s new stop-motion animated film, Isle of Dogs.
“Isle of Dogs tells the story of Atari Kobayashi, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by Executive Decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.”
