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.

Contact David Fincher

Inspired by Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Fincher began making movies at age eight with an 8 mm camera. Fincher eschewed the film school route, getting a job loading cameras and doing other hands-on work for John Korty's Korty Films. He was later hired by Industrial Light & Magic in 1980, where he worked on productions for Twice Upon a Time, Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. In 1984, he left ILM to direct a commercial for the American Cancer Society, that would show a fetus smoking a cigarette. This quickly brought Fincher to the attention of producers in Los Angeles and he was given the chance to direct the documentary The Beat of the Live Drum featuring Rick Springfield in 1985. Though he would continue to direct spots for companies like Revlon, Converse, Nike, Pepsi, Sony, and Levi's, Fincher soon discovered music videos and went on to direct many promos.

  1. Yeah definitely it's a good film but Mark Zuckerberg said that the film is misleading the audience.
