Signing x Talk with Spike Jonze for Making Where the Wild Things Are Book

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, 10 Nov 2009

Heads On and We Shoot: The Making of Where the Wild Things Are is a book about err…the making if this movie you may have heard of called Where the Wild Things Are. Director Spike Jonze (Juxtapoz #100) will be present to sign copies and for a Q&A.

Editors Of Mcsweeney's, Spike Jonze, and Dave Eggers are hosting an evening at Family Los Angeles on Sunday, November 15, 5pm - Q&A followed by book signing (Free Attendance).

Heads On and We Shoot unveils the unique collaboration behind Where the Wild Things Are -the combined work of Maurice Sendak, Spike Jonze, Dave Eggers, and all the cast and crew.

The book design is heavily image-based, a mix of early sketches, storyboards, character designs, and extensive behind-the-scenes photographs that show both incredible live-action puppetry and computer animation. The text includes forewords by Jonze and Eggers, interviews with the cast and crew, stories from on and off the set, and early drafts of the screenplay.

The resulting book will be simultaneously a beautiful object for collectors, an insider’s guide for devotees, and an intimate window into the creative process.

Family Los Angeles - 436 N. Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles 90036
