Behind the Scenes on the Fantastic Mr. Fox Voice Recordings

fantastic-mr-foxYahoo has an interesting behind the scenes look at the recording of Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox. What makes it so unique is that the actors are not sitting in a cramped, enclosed, isolated studio. They are actually acting out the parts as they are recorded, presumably so that they seem more authentic, while the other actors are there to deliver their lines. Producer Allison Abbate also compares George Clooney to Cary Grant. I don’t see it, but Clooney does do a very authentic Hawkeye whistle at the end. Maybe he has elements of Donald Sutherland within him.
