Life Story of Wes Anderson

Wesley Wales Anderson was born in Houston, Texas. His mother, Texas Ann (Burroughs), is an archaeologist turned real estate agent, and his father, Melver Leonard Anderson, worked in advertising and PR. He has two brothers, Eric and Mel. Anderson's parents divorced when he was a young child, an event that he described as the most crucial event of his brothers and his growing up. During childhood, Anderson also began writing plays and making super-8 movies. He was educated at Westchester High School and then St. John's, a private prep school in Houston, Texas, which was later to prove an inspiration for the film Rushmore (1998).

Anderson attended the University of Texas in Austin, where he majored in philosophy. It was there that he met Owen Wilson. They became friends and began making short films, some of which aired on a local cable-access station. One of their shorts was Bottle Rocket (1993), which starred Owen and his brother Luke Wilson. The short was screened at the Sundance Film Festival, where it was successfully received, so much so that they received funding to make a feature-length version. Bottle Rocket (1996) was not a commercial hit, but it gained a cult...

Some of the character names in his movies, most notably in Rushmore (1998), were actually the names of his St. John's classmates.

While shooting The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004) the once pasty and bookish Anderson got a tan, grew his hair long, and got into better shape. His frequent star, Anjelica Huston, noted that Wes had suddenly become handsome.

Wes Anderson in Mistress America (2015)

Many of his cast members have connections to The Godfather (1972). His first film, Bottle Rocket (1993), featured James Caan. Rushmore (1998) starred Jason Schwartzman, son of Talia Shire, and he has become a regular in Anderson's films. That film also featured numerous Godfather references. Roman Coppola, son of director Francis Ford Coppola and cousin to Schwartzman, has also co-written several of his films.

Wes Anderson and Tilda Swinton in Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

All of his films since The Royal Tenenbaums have featured a type of shot composition called "planimetric staging" which involves placing the camera at a 90 degree angle with the subject of the shot. This type of shot is one of the main reasons Anderson's films are said to have a unique visual style. Other directors who have used this technique include Buster Keaton, Jean-Luc Godard, Stanley Kubrick, and Yasujiro Ozu, although almost none have used at as frequently as Anderson has (almost every shot).
