This fascinating featurette on the making of director Wes Anderson’s upcoming 2018 stop-motion animated film, Isle of Dogs, gives a glimpse at how the film’s animators made the canine and human characters look so believably lifelike.

“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.”
