Choosing my design hero was an easy choice. Wes Anderson is someone I’ve always admired and he was one of the main reasons I wanted to study moving image.
When doing my research, I had to keep reminding myself that this was ‘research’ as this was the perfect excuse to ‘binge’ watch all his films again and youtube every interview. After doing a solid few days of research, I came to the conclusion that since his style and approach was so distinctive and recognisable, I could really do anything for this brief - making it somewhat easier and harder at the same time.
It came down to two solid ideas; creating a ‘How to be part of WES’ WORLD’ starter pack or using his style to create a recipe book / video. After the crit, I decided to go with the starter pack idea, as I discovered the recipe video had already been done by many people.
The starter pack was a checklist of things to make yourself become like one of Wes’ characters / be in the mindset. It is in video form, yet the concept is that it is a book and the video is a live version of the book.
