How to create the Trending Wes Anderson Trend on TikTok

Recently, a Wes Anderson trend has been spreading like wildfire on TikTok, and it’s stunning! We will now help you hop on the trend by showing you how to make it.

Who/What is Wes Anderson

Wes Anderson is an accomplished filmmaker known for his unique cinematic style, characterized by symmetrical shots, warm-toned and saturated filters, and stop-motion-like takes. Anderson’s notable films include The Grand Budapest Hotel, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and The Royal Tenenbaums.


With a good imagination, everything is symmetrical. Let a girl day dream! #wesanderson

On TikTok, Anderson’s cinematic style has become a sensation, with users incorporating his techniques into their adventures, such as dinner dates, train rides, travels to foreign countries, and more.

The trend started with Ava Williams, who posted a TikTok video of herself taking the “first train Along the Shoreline East to Grand Central Terminal.” Her video went viral because of Anderson’s distinct techniques, and soon enough, the rest of TikTok followed suit, using Anderson’s film style to add charm to their videos. The quirkier and more vintage-looking the location, the more Wes Anderson-like your video will be, as some people say.

How to make yours.

1. Use “OBITUARY” by Alexandre Desplat sound


I’ve recently discovered Wes Anderson and his films so here’s a quick & fun little video for this trend

♬ Obituary – Alexandre Desplat

The song was featured in Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch in 2021. Additionally, it is suggested that you begin your video with the text “Don’t try to act like you’re in a Wes Anderson movie…” to establish the atmosphere.

2. Stand still in front of your location

To capture the Wes Anderson cinematic style in your video, it’s crucial to maintain symmetry in your frames. When you reach your destination, make sure to stand still for at least five seconds before you start filming.

Avoid shooting from an angle and instead aim straight at your subject. Do not use any panning shots or angles other than 90 or 180 degrees. Lastly, stillness is key to capturing the recognizable Wes Anderson cinematic technique.

3. Include a Title Frame

To create a visually appealing video, use a colored background that complements the content. Introduce the location of the video in the first few seconds and then gradually add the time to avoid overwhelming the viewer with too much text at once.

4. Record your clips

5. Use an Anderson Filter to create the most accurate color palette of the Wes Anderson color.
