In the wake of the animated posters that popped up on Reddit recently, I decided to make my own set from Wes Anderson movies (YES, I left off Bottle Rocket, as the internet was kind enough to remind me repeatedly). These were pretty tough to do—I ashamedly haven’t seen every Wes Anderson movie, so without having an idea of which scenes would immediately work, I hunted through HD-ish YouTube videos and had to download and trim them to go into Photoshop.
The video I had also wasn’t high resolution enough to really get in the nitty gritty and crop figures from the background without some serious jank-ness. Case in point:
I really thought I could make it look like he was endlessly running, and it almost worked! Very crude and wonky, but a good start for sure.Trying to cut a figure out when I can’t tell where he ends and the sky begins was tough.
Someone pointed out that the submarine they’re inside is pictured in the background of the interview, which I didn’t realize until I was done. I’ve never seen Life Aquatic, but I want to watch it for a better in-submarine moment and fix this one.
Fun fact: I made the Imgur gallery public right before I posted it to Reddit—someone put it up right before I did, and so I was called the reposter and thief. So shocked, I had to pull back from my desk. I’d never been called a thief before, and especially not of my own work! Oh well, such is the internet I guess.
