Fences And Macklemore Video For “Arrows” Reminiscent of Wes Anderson Style

Screen Shot 2014-08-11 at 11.48.20 AM

I’ve only seen two Wes Anderson films (don’t worry, I plan on watching them all), but I believe I’m familiar enough to recognize his film style. The newly released music video for “Arrows” by Fences featuring Macklemore is visually similar to Anderson’s precise approach, especially in a Moonrise Kingdom kind of way. On top of having a rad concept, the video is pleasing to the eye.

Similar elements:

  • Well-thought-out and consistent color palette
  • Central perspective and symmetry
  • Flat space camera shots and moves
  • Obvious use of green screens
  • Tracking shots

Here’s the video for your viewing pleasure:

Any Wes Anderson fans out there? See any resemblances?
“Arrows” video: YAY or NAY?
