Wes Anderson: The Tips and Tricks of Writing and Directing

Wes Anderson is one of the most innovative filmmakers out there. With a style that is completely unique and a voice that shines through every script, but how does he do it?

It turns out all you need to make a great film is a vision and a tenacity to bring it to life- easier said than done, but Wes makes it look easy.

In this video by Studiobinder, Wes talks about how he both writes his movies and then translates his vision to film. Honestly, I felt so inspired watching this, knowing even someone like Wes Anderson is basically just a well known indie filmmaker, who’s working around budget constrictions like the rest of us to bring his films to life.

It’s a good watch to remember that even the best filmmakers were at one time just trying to make movies with their friends.

Enjoy this awesome piece of inspiration and I hope it encourages you to get out there and make whatever creative project you have in the back of your notebook.
