The primary goal of this project is to reimagine the beloved Super Mario characters within the aesthetics and narrative nuances of Wes Anderson's filmography. By blending the fantastical elements of the Mushroom Kingdom with Anderson's signature style, we aim to evoke nostalgia while introducing a fresh perspective on these familiar characters.
The conceptualization phase involved an in-depth study of Anderson's filmography, focusing on key elements such as meticulous set design, vibrant color palettes, and quirky character interactions. The challenge was to seamlessly integrate the essence of Super Mario into Anderson's universe without compromising the integrity of either.
