We're proud to introduce the brand new Sirk Productions trailer and website for Matt Zoller Seitz's The Wes Anderson Collection: The Grand Budapest Hotel. We worked directly with author and acclaimed New York Magazine film critic Matt Zoller Seitz, recording and editing to create a trailer that is reminiscent of Wes Anderson's classic whimsical style.
The book is full of interviews, interesting facts, behind-the-scenes photographs, and insights into Wes Anderson's directing. We captured the gorgeous illustrations and animated the characters we love from The Grand Budapest Hotel, including the author himself, as he leads the audience through the trailer, inviting you to relax and stay a while.
We created The Grand Budapest hotel website as part of the main The Wes Anderson Collection site, using complex and little-known animation techniques to create the seamless flow of characters throughout the site. Look for the film's characters and props in the website's layout—you'll find some familiar scenes! Stay tuned for a behind-the-scenes look into how we created the more difficult animations that make this site unique.
You can find Matt Zoller Seitz's comprehensive book, The Wes Anderson Collection: The Grand Budapest Hotel, in bookstores or online this Tuesday, February 10th.
