Wes Anderson: Centered

As the last few weeks have shown, with a new Wes Anderson film comes an opportunity for his fans to admire his aesthetic and design sensibility. Now a new compilation on Vimeo brings out the director’s love of ‘centred’ compositions and symmetry in his shots…

Fans of Anderson’s work will be well aware of the visual elements the director regularly incorporates into his films from The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, to Fantastic Mr. Fox.

The attention to detail that he invests in his latest, The Grand Budapest Hotel, was more than evident in our interview with the film’s lead graphic designer, Annie Atkins. And only the other day a tumblr of the colour palettes from various of his films was doing the rounds on Twitter.

But now Kogonada, a filmmaker who has made compilations of Stanley Kubrick’s use of ‘one-point perspective‘ and also considered Terence Malick’s use of fire and water imagery, has assembled a tribute to Anderson’s love of centred imagery, which appears in nearly all of his films.
