California Woman Makes 'Wes Anderson Guide' to Surviving Quarantine

Californian Madeline Turner came up with a creative way to keep herself entertained under COVID-19 lockdown, making a video imagining how a character from a Wes Anderson film would spend their time during the pandemic.

The video starts out with Turner waking up, before she goes about her daily activities in a very “Anderson” style – idiosyncratically and with great attention to detail.

Turner makes herself breakfast and lunch consisting of chewing gum, writes her mother a letter, and mourns her beloved parrot, Artemis, who died while at war.

Harpsichord music plays in the background, and Turner narrates in an English accent about the peculiar activities she is taking part in.

“The video took four hours – three to shoot and one to edit, and everything was sourced from items around my apartment,” Turner told Storyful. She added that she shot the video on an iPhone XS. Credit: Madelaine Turner via Storyful
