Did you know that the sushi-making scene in Wes Anderson’s latest film Isle of Dogs took over a month to produce? In a recent time-lapse video, animator Andy Biddle (who has previously worked on Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox and the Grand Budapest Hotel) shows the detailed steps he took for the film’s sushi master to prepare a bento box of crab and octopus. The 32-day shoot was created by Biddle and Tony Farquhar-Smith, who took over the scene at its mid-point when Biddle left to work on another project. Their hands fly around the set, yet the character’s false appendages seem to effortlessly glide across the table, handling undulating tentacles and perfectly slicing segments of fish.
