Isle of Dogs: How Wes Anderson’s stop-motion epic was made

Wes Anderson’s stop-motion epic Isle of Dogs arrives in UK cinemas next week. We talk to the film’s production designers Adam Stockhausen and Paul Harrod about bringing Anderson’s vision of a dystopian future Japan to life, the director’s legendary attention to detail and creating the film’s lovable canine characters.

Isle of Dogs is an incredible feat of stop motion. The 100-minute film is packed with thousands of handmade objects, charming puppets and some brilliant animation and illustration dreamt up by Wes Anderson and a talented army of craftspeople.
