Watch this animation masterclass from the makers of Isle of Dogs


Wes Anderson's joyously off-the-wall animation Isle of Dogs hits our screens next week. (Unlimited members: don't forget about your advance screening on Monday.) 

If you've already seen the trailer, you can't fail to have been dazzled by the intricacy of Anderson's stop motion designs, ranging from wind-ruffled fur to the expansive, rust-tarnished landscape of the eponymous island.

Broadly defined, stop motion is the processing of animating an object, or objects, one frame at a time. When played back, it creates the illusion of movement – and in Anderson's hands, the results are as wonderfully strange as one would expect.

To get a sense of the remarkably intricate work that went into the movie, check out the following behind-the-scenes video. It's a reminder of the sheer artistry needed to do justice to Anderson's vision.

Isle of Dogs opens in Cineworld on Friday 30th March. Don't forget to test your Wes Anderson knowledge in our picture quiz.
