VOTD: Wes Anderson goes red and yellow in creative video essay

Red & Yellow: A Wes Anderson Supercut from Rishi Kaneria on Vimeo.

It’s recently been pointed out that increasingly, all movies are starting to look the same shades of blue and orange. Perhaps the one and only filmmaker noticeably going against the grain is Wes Anderson. His vibrant shades of red and yellow were enough to finally net him a Best Production Design Oscar on Sunday for The Grand Budapest Hotel, along with a cinematography nomination for Robert Yeoman. If the work of Matt Zoller Seitz wasn’t enough to whet your Anderson appetite, then another video essayist has pointed out how these two colors dominate Anderson’s palette. Rishi Kaneria put together this supercut of Anderson’s work. He’s given the same treatment to Stanley Kubrick for his bold use of red, and to Pixar for taking us through the entire spectrum of the rainbow. Watch the video above.
