Production Design on “Isle of Dogs”: A Chat with the Fantastic Mr. Paul Harrod

Paul Harrod says one of his favorite sculptors is August Rodin. It’s not a name you’d imagine getting love from the Portland co-production designer of Wes Anderson’s stop-motion animation Isle of Dogs. But considering that the visuals of this phantasmagoria jointly styled with Adam Stockhausen are a breakthrough in the art form, it’s no wonder the virtuosity behind them involved the study of a master. Harrod’s more direct influences came from stop-motio...

It’d be downright spooky were it not for the creative spirit infusing the ruins. That legendary Montparnasse hovel is w...
