94. WOW-TASTIC MR FOX BONES BUNNY BULL
Actually I purchased two.
One was ‘The Mighty Book of Boosh”, the other was ‘The Making of The Fantastic Mr Fox”.
2 books that mirror the kind of work I would like to do in film – if I EVER get there.
A fusion of live action, stop-motion, 2D animation and of course sauteed in lots of quirky humour deep fried in the fantastical and bizarre.
The stuff that Michel Gondry, Wes Anderson, Paul King, Peter Jackson and Jared Hess are so good at doing. The independent, small-scale quirky stories.
While all the directors have wow’ed me in many ways, last year Wes Anderson’s ‘The Fantastic Mr Fox” stop-animation gem, Peter Jackson’s “The Lovely Bones” and Paul King’s “Bunny and the Bull” have got to be in my Top 10 surreal fav movies of last year.
Each of them created delightful, imaginary worlds that I was eager to stumble my way into and boy, what a ride each of these films was.
So in appreciation of the bizarre, surreal and ‘quirksome’ here’s some interesting behind-the-scenes of these films.
Watch how Wes Anderson brought life in Roald Dahl’s foxy little world in the trailer below.
This movie was so good, it’s sad that it was bypassed by so many viewers. The story broke my heart and haunted me days after I watched it. Here’s Peter Jackson’s ‘The Lovely Bones”.
And finally, my personal favourite (because I love ‘The Mighty Boosh” so much) is Paul King’s “Bunny and the Bull” as he explains how he created the world in the offbeat road movie.
