Isle of Dogs: Wes Anderson stop-motion magic revealed in new video
It’s not everyday that we get a stop-motion film because stop-motion anything takes a heck of a long time to produce — but the end results are usually worth it. With Wes Anderson‘s highly anticipated Isle of Dogs hitting theaters on March 23, EW has an exclusive look behind-the-scenes of how a unique team of 25 animators and 10 assistants brought the vision of a canine-only island off the coast of Japan to life.

O homem com uma câmera (1929), de Dziga Vertov.
Uma aula de cinema, este talvez seja o expoente máximo do esforço soviético em criar através da montagem uma linguagem própria à sétima arte que a tornasse autônoma da literatura e teatro. Filme experimental, foca nas possibilidades de se fotografar e filmar momentos cotidianos.

A Digital Archive of Heavy Metal, the Influential "Adult Fantasy Magazine" featuring the Art of Moebius, H.R. Giger & More
In making a time capsule of the late 20th century, one would be remiss if they did not include at least an issue or two of Heavy Metal magazine. Yes, it specialized in unapologetically turning women in metal bras into sex objects. The gleeful amount of T&A on its covers, surrounded by spaceships, swords, and sorcery, mark it as a relic of its era that appealed to a specific demographic. But Heavy Metal was much more than sexy sci-fi mascots drawn in lurid pulpy styles. Along with its share of erotica, the “adult illustrated fantasy magazine” provided a vivid showcase for some of the most interesting artists and storytellers working in the mainstream and in various subgenres of fantasy and sci-fi. (It continues to do so.)

Wes Anderson, 48, won the best director prize for his stop-motion film Isle of Dogs, which also made history as the first animated film to open Berlin.
Anderson was not present to accept the award on Saturday night, but one of Isle of Dog’s voice actors, Bill Murray, accepted in his place, telling the audience: “I never thought I’d go to work as a dog and come home with a bear. I’m glad I was deputized to watch the house here in case anything like this broke out… I’d like to be one more person from America to say ‘Ich bin ein Berliner Hund.'” (‘I am a Berlin dog.’)

One Artist's Mission to Illustrate All the World's Mythical Beasts
Every culture has its own distinctive mythological beasts. In Brazil, there’s the Headless Mule, a cursed creature whose decapitated head hovers above a fire-spewing neck as it gallops across the country. From Japan, the Kotobuki is a Zodiac Frankenstein’s monster: it consists of all 12 signs, from the nose of the rat to the tail of the snake. Peru has the Huayramama, which looks like a vast snake plus the billowing hair and face of an old woman.

Notebook Turducken
I carry the pocket notebook all day, scribble stuff in it, take notes. It’s basically a scratch pad. Then, every morning after breakfast, I open up the pocket notebook, check my notes, then I fill out my logbook, which is sort of like an index of my days and a memory refresher. Then, I write and draw 3-10 pages in my diary, based on my notes and my log. I cross off things in my pocket notebook after I write about them. The diary then becomes a place I go to when I need new writing and blog posts. It might sound like a lot of work, but using this method I am never lost for something to write about. Also, my job is to write, so, there you have it. (By the way, I stole most of this method off David Sedaris.)
