Gore Verbinski, David Fincher and Michael Bay. These are names of well-known movie directors in recent times. They have another thing in common, which not many people might know. And that is making music videos before they stepped into the movie industry.

What I like about their movies, is that they contain the influences from music videos, with shots that are complex, and usually more slick and stylised.
