The Color Palettes and Symmetry of Wes Anderson

Wes Anderson Color Palette

Wes Anderson Color Palette

Since the release of The Grand Budapest Hotel there’s been a streak of interesting stories around Wes Anderson and the way he creates his films. The first interesting site was the color palettes of Wes Anderson, a Tumblr that takes key scenes from his films and defines a perfect palette inspired by it. As you can see above the results are quite fantastic.

The other piece is a video put together by Kogonada which shows Anderson’s obsession with symmetry. It’s funny to see just how much he uses the technique, it’s almost overkill when you see it in a hypercut like this. Still, the way it’s edited is rather clever, like the way the bisect animates with the zipping of the tents.
