Must Watch: the Art of Slow Motion in Wes Anderson’s Work
Some filmmakers have a signature. The way they visually tell their stories can be recognized through motifs and/or technics that keep coming back. Like Paul Thomas Anderson, and his uses of Long Takes, Wes Anderson is a filmmaker that has a strong universe that has been studied at length in the last few years, and easily recognizable with his love of symmetry, inserts and slow motion.
In this 4-minute long super cut, Alejandro Prullansky compiles slow motion shots from Anderson’s films up until Moonrise Kingdom (and with the exception of Fantatstic Mr. Fox).

As Brainpicking says so well, donating = loving.
I spend around 30h per week working on mentorless.com to find articles that will interest all of us, write the newsletter and maintain the site (that would need much more of my time to improve, I agree). A lot of us can’t donate, but if you can, and feel this website deserves your help, any amount will make a difference.
