The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.

In this edition, take a close look behind the scenes of the creation of the extensive sets used for Isle of Dogs. Plus, watch a nearly two-hour fascinating and insightful lecture about screenwriting from the writer of The Darkest Hour, and prepare for Avengers: Infinity War with the final countdown.

A new Isle of Dogs featurette goes behind the scenes of the detailed miniature sets from the stop-motion animated adventure.
