Steve Ramsden has produced one of the better movie mashup trailers I have seen in a while, a perfect mixture of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining and Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. Titled The Grand Overlook Hotel, Ramsden edits the two films into one and shows just how similar they look at times.
Here is the video for The Grand Overlook Hotel:
What stands out here are the color palette similarities, especially in the opening shots of the Budapest intercut with Jack Nicholson’s first interview in The Shining. Also, the symmetrical blocking of scenes and the texture of the hotels fit together seamlessly.
Kudos to Steve Ramsden on The Grand Overlook Hotel. You can check out his channel here.
