Watch: Wes Anderson's 'The Shining' Mashup 'Grand Overlook Hotel'
"This is the kitchen, huh?" Now this is a great mashup video. Editor Steve Ramsden has cut together a quick mashup video called The Grand Overlook Hotel, combining Kubrick's classic horror The Shining with Anderson's Oscar-winning feature The Grand Budapest Hotel for Wes Anderson's The Shining. You're definitely going to want to book a room in here. These two films have such intricate framing symmetry between certain shots, and Ramsden took advantage of this to put together a trailer that feels like they could be combined into one film and actually work. Have a quick stay at The Grand Overlook Hotel below. Enjoy!
Thanks to SlashFilm for the tip. Full description from YouTube: "I noticed how Wes Anderson and Stanley Kubrick frame their shots in a similar way - this was the result: 'The Grand Overlook Hotel'!" The video mashup was edited by Steve Ramsden - you can see more of his work here. This is a very sleek video that is amusing to watch, and has impressive integration of footage from both films. Plus I love the use of the Wes Anderson titles with the Overlook Hotel backdrop, and everything else, nice work. I would watch this movie! But then again, I already have – rather, I've already seen these two, and both of them are great films.
