Feeling Centred: Wes Anderson’s Film Style



One of my favourite directors of all time is Wes Anderson – one of this year’s “Best Director” Oscar nominees for The Grand Budapest Hotel.  Although he didn’t win, his unique perspective and framing style will always mark his work as distinctly and undeniably “Wes Anderson.” From the Royal Tenenbaums to Moonrise Kingdom to The Darjeeling Limited and beyond, you’ll find most frames are completely centred….and sometimes centred and shot from above. Below are two videos made from a collection of Anderson’s films showcasing these two unique (and constant) features. They’re also a reminder of how wonderfully special he is as a director.
