Fantastic Mr. Anderson (and gang)

The above video shows how Wes Anderson's newest film, a stop-motion adaptation of Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr. Fox was made. Anderson would sketch out or act out a scene, send it to the animators, they'd shoot the scene, and then using a system developed for the production called FishCat, Anderson could log on and review the footage, any footage, from anywhere, at anytime.

The film was completely shot on Nikon D3 stills. 621,450 of them.

The Making of Fantastic Mr. Fox in book form, published by Rizzoli, designed by Pentagram will be released November 3rd (link).
