When you think of director Wes Anderson certain things come to mind: His use of modern yet classic colors, like Millennial Pink, the whimsical way he approaches storytelling, and his predilection for arranging his shots symmetrically are considered hallmarks. But what might not come immediately to mind is Anderson's use of soundscapes. Besides his evocative soundtracks, Anderson uses ambient sound and foley techniques for a number of effects, from complimenting the preciousness of a moment to suddenly upending and frightening his characters. Watch – and listen – as we demonstrate how Wes Anderson creates moments of wonder, tension, and dramatic atmosphere through his use of sound.
