Abstract

This short documentary gives the audience a small lesson in film's most basic concept: mise-en-scene. The documentary compares Wes Anderson's second film, Rushmore, to his three newest films: Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom, and The Grand Budapest Hotel. The documentary explores how Anderson and his team use sound, lighting, colors, and screen orientation to give their audience a feeling of excitement and wonder. This documentary marks the first time I had ever tackled such a project. I had to learn how to use a multitude of hardware and software on top of the creation of the documentary itself. This allowed me to strengthen my abilities as a filmmaker. The voiceover audio was recorded with a Blue Yeti and edited in Audacity, while the footage was edited together with Sony Vegas Pro 13.
