New Footage from Where the Wild Things Are

September 3, 2009

A new video has surfaced that shows some of the documentary that director Spike Jonze put together about the making-of his new film, Where the Wild Things Are. We get to see Jonze in conversation with Maurice Sendak, the man who wrote the children's book the film is based on. And we get to see a little more of the footage from the movie. You won't want to miss this, so hit the jump and take a look.

The Telegraph posted this video, which is a wonderful behind-the-scenes look at Jonze's relationship with Sendak, as well as the making of the film itself. We see him working with his young star, Max Records (who plays Max), and interviewing Sendak about how his book was initially received when it was first published in 1963.

For a great in-depth profile on Spike Jonze take a look at the article The New York Times posted yesterday.
