As Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are nears its October 16th release date, a whole bunch of neat behind-the-scenes videos and images are beginning to sneak online. Cinematical has received one of those videos, which follows production designer K.K. Barrett (Lost in Translation, Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Marie Antoinette) as he discusses at length his career, his projects and the creative process behind Where the Wild Things Are.

This video, along with four others, are part of an ongoing series called "Art Talks" pieced together by VBS.TV, who've created a pretty groovy looking Wild Things-themed website which you can check out over here. Along with our exclusive behind-the-scenes video with production designer K.K. Barrett, we'll also be treated to chats with Sonny Gerasimowicz (art director), Eric Z. (Spike's artistic sidekick), Lance Accord (cinematographer) and Casey Storm (costume designer) in the coming days. Aside from the videos, you can also check out a website that just went live (via Vice) called 24 Artists Inspired by Where the Wild Things Are. Feel free to head over there for some groovy art and funky Wild Things-inspired coolness.

Watch the video with production designer K.K. Barrett after the jump.
