New York: Fantastic Mr. Fox's Gift Guide

New York: Fantastic Mr. Fox's Gift Guide This week's issue of New York showcases their annual holiday gift guide, featuring the stars of Wes Anderson's new stop-motion animated film, Fantastic Mr. Fox. Five foxes, a badger, a rabbit, and a possum flew in from England for the shoot in Dumbo, accompanied by a prop stylist who fashioned the gifts out of extra wallpaper from the movie set, a puppeteer, and a hairdresser. Check out a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot after the jump...

    So many folks outside of the creative field just think our jobs are fun and easy. But this video shows those painstaking details we take to make that shot perfect. You have to admit, this is a hilarious and fun cover, though. Great job. I appreciate the time and expertise of that photo crew.
