If Wes Anderson Directed ‘The Shining’
People love creating mashups of Wes Anderson’s unique style with other famous films. And we love to watch them (see the Star Wars/Wes Anderson mashup). For this mashup, editor Steve Ramsden stitched together Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel with Stanley Kubrick’s masterful horror film The Shining. The end result is quite fantastic. Ramsden was able to play around with some of the aspect ratios of the two films, and apply some hue shifting to match Anderson’s pastel color palette. Utilizing similarly framed shots from both films (watch for the tracking shot of Shelley Duvall walking into a room seamlessly blended with Ralph Fiennes walking through the room), Ramsden imagines The Grand Overlook Hotel—giving The Shining a slightly comedic tone, or The Grand Budapest Hotel a darker touch, depending on how you look at it.
