If you haven’t seen Wes Anderson’s, The Grand Budapest Hotel, it’s well worth watching. It has a great cast, magical cinematography, beautiful colour palette and is ultimately a really fun comedy caper. All his films have a very particular visual style that is hard not to find visually pleasing. This excellent little short highlights one particular troupe, symmetry and centering. I’ve always tried to avoid symmetry and centering when taking photographs or back in school when I was working on art projects, however Anderson utilises it to such great effect that I’m quite inspired by its use. Check out the video and see just how precise he gets it.
