Alfred Hitchcock and Wes Anderson
According to The Film Experience, auteur theory holds that “a film bears the creative imprint of one individual,the director” and that it “is taken to reveal the personality of its director." It suggests that a director may have a signature style, or ‘stamp,’ that permeates his or her body of work. My final year project explored two very different Auteurs from two different eras.
Book One- Alfred Hitchcock can be deemed one of the original Auteurs. This book visualises his directorial characteristics using typography.
Book Two- Anderson has been regarded as an new age auteur with his own unique detailed technique. The second book embodies Anderson’s style using his movie “The Royal Tenenbaums” as an example.
