Look Effect has released a five minute video highlighting the visual effects that went into Wes Anderson’s most recent film The Grand Budapest Hotel.  Many of the effects are clear to viewer, while others like text and color correction are far less visible.  It’s refreshing to see a director embrace the use of miniatures, as well as digital effects.  Combining the two creates a unique visual look to a film.

I grew up watching Movie Magic on the Discovery Channel, so any insight into the way films are made has always been intriguing.  Wes Anderson has progressed to the point where his films have this dreamlike heightened sense of reality, and the video offers a glimpse not the process he goes through in order to achieve his desired look.  From his camera movements to his color palettes, Wes Anderson is a unique talent, and the type of filmmaker that only comes around every-so-often.

Enjoy the video below!
