'Accidentally Wes Anderson', un mundo de película sin salir de Instagram
Te pueden gustar o no las historias que cuenta, pero si te gusta la fotografía y los paisajes armónicos te producen cierta paz interior, seguro que amas la estética de Wes Anderson. Ahora ya puedes disfrutar también de la belleza de sus pelis en Instagram. Aviso: no vas a querer salir de ahí.
Dicen que el director estadounidense perfecciona al milímetro sus decorados y que tiene cierta obsesión por la simetría. Esa precisión de cirujano mezclada con tonos pastel, nos arrastra siempre a universos e historias maravillosas como vemos en 'El gran hotel Budapest', 'Moonrise Kingdom' o 'Fantástico Sr. Fox'. Ay, ¡ojalá vivir en uno de sus paisajes!
Claro que, a veces no nos damos cuenta y resulta que estamos rodeados de esta estética maravillosa y ha tenido que llegar 'Accidentally Wes Anderson' para recordárnoslo. Según recogen en su web, este proyecto va dirigido a "viajeros ávidos y aspirantes a aventureros" y es una "muestra de las infinitas oportunidades de experimentar un diseño distintivo y narrativas inesperadas". Esta cuenta además es colaborativa y anima a sus usuarios a participar etiquetando las fotos que ellos consideren con el hashtag #accidentallywesanderson.
¡Mira qué maravilla!

Por cierto, si tienes curiosidad por descubrir este tipo de localizaciones sin salir de España (ni de Instagram), la cuenta 'Wes Anderson de la Mancha' nos invita a pasear por sitios de ensueño 'made in Spain' como el Palacio Real, el Museo Cerralbo o el cine Doré. Detrás de esto está una pareja hispano australiana que busca descubrir sitos fantásticos dentro del entorno cotidiano y que tengan rasgos del lenguaje visual del director. "Creemos que España es un país con mucho color, diversidad arquitectónica y paisajística", explican a Yasss.
Normal, con el Barroco que tenemos en España no nos extrañaría nada que le sirviese de inspiración al mismísimo Anderson.
