Some film makers are known for their individual style and the quite often unique look and feel that runs through their filmography. Stylistic flourishes and scene set up all add up to a signature which is instantly recognisable as a ‘A film by …’. Of all the present day film makers Wes Anderson arguably has the most obvious set of visual identifiers.
One of his signature looks is the point of view shot of a main character looking down and interacting with whatever is below them. Usually within these shots you get a glimpse of a pair of hands or in the case of the Fantastic Mr. Fox, a set of paws. Vimeo user kogonada, who specialises in examining film makers styles, has put together a rather splendid short video which highlights the Point of view shots that feature in a number of Wes Anderson’s films.
