What if Wes Anderson Directed the Title Sequence of Forrest Gump?
Cue quirk

You'd know a Wes Anderson movie anywhere - his sense of style, carefully arranged shots and even his fonts have been the same pretty much since the beginning of movie time.

Which is no bad thing, especially if you like the thing he's selling, but it does leave him ripe for parody and the latest is one of the best. Louis Paquet has posted a new video on Vimeo which supposes that Anderson got the gig to do the title sequence for 1994 oscar winner Forrest Gump, directed byRobert Zemeckis.

And its fairly sublime.

The presentation is just about perfect, as is the music - though its sadly not a riff on the original. Also, there's less CG feather here, which is obviously always a shame.

As a comparison, here's the title sequence from the real movie.
