Wes Anderson was bornon 1 May 1969 in Houston, American, is Director, Producer, Actor. Wes Anderson is an award winning American film director, producer and actor, best known for movies like ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’ and ‘Moonrise Kingdom’. Famous for making films with distinctive visual and narrative style, he primarily focuses on making fast-paced comedies marked by more serious or melancholic elements like adultery and grief. Much appreciated for his ingenuity and originality, Anderson has always been a creative individual right from childhood. He began writing plays and making super-8 movies while he was just a small boy and aspired to become a writer. As a teenager, he accepted a part-time job as a cinema projectionist while studying in college. The future actor Owen Wilson was a college mate of his, and the two youngsters became fast friends. The duo decided to work together and wrote the script for a short film called ‘Bottle Rocket’ (1994). This marked the beginning of a professional partnership that would lead both the young men to successful careers in the film industry. After making a few other movies, Anderson received a major career breakthrough with ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’ (again written with Owen Wilson) which went on to become a critically appraised commercial success. Anderson is also the recipient of multiple awards, including the BAFTA Award for Best Original Screenplay in 2015.
