Wes Anderson, Centered

Astronaut Chris Hadfield at TED, Casey Neistat surfs in J. Crew, the origins of Matthew Dear and more in our weekly look at the web

If you haven’t recognized that Wes Anderson really, really likes centered shots, you will after watching this video montage. Filmmaker and video essayist Kogonada poignantly comments—using no words, just a dotted line—on the auteur’s affinity, or perhaps obsession, for balance. We also recommend checking out Kogonada’s other work—many being Vimeo staff picks—which point out certain aspects of famed filmmakers that may have also gone unnoticed by an untrained eye, such as the passageways in Yasujirō Ozu films, Stanley Kubrick’s frequent use of one-point perspective and Terrence Malick’s duality with fire and water.
