If you ever wanted to know the kind of work that goes into making a stop-motion movie then watch the featurette for Fantastic Mr. Fox below. I knew it was a time consuming ordeal as the figures and puppets need to be moved only a small fraction at a time to keep everything looking fluid, but I didn’t know it would take 1 day just to get 30 seconds of footage. No wonder they’ve been making it since 2007! They also had George Clooney rolling around in a field to make the voice sound realistic.
Fantastic Mr. Fox will be released on November 13th in the US and October 23rd in the UK
