Melzer has been mesmerized by Wes Anderson's style since he saw The Royal Tenanbaums in high school, but it was his ability to relate to Rushmore's Max Fischer that cemented Anderson in his pile of people to intake, praise, and emulate. Wander through Wes's filmography with an aspiring filmmaker and learn about how important storyboarding is for Anderson's films, the ways he has brought back classic filmmaking techniques, and the distinctive dialog and powerful aesthetic choices that craft his unique and endearing style. Get on board with Team Zissou, don your Khaki Scout uniform, grab your lobby boy hat, and get into this convo.
Watch The Street Wizard's Apprentice, especially to catch all of the borrowed Wes techniques.
