Watch Wes Anderson Behind the Scenes of The Grand Budapest Hotel

A colorful look at the new film

The distinct, whimsical colors that are characteristic of Wes Anderson films make yet another appearance in the director’s latest creation, The Grand Budapest Hotel. Even in the unedited footage, it’s clear that the color palette was meticulously thought-out, from the green and orange lobby carpeting to the sharp purple uniforms.

Watch Anderson in action throughout the filming process — interacting with actors, running on- and off-set, crouching behind a screen — all with perfectly messy hair.

The best part? Seeing the camera crew, looking quite out of place, rush down the long hallways of that grand hotel with their various rigs. Watch it up top.
