I first noticed David Fincher’s work as a music video director in the ’90s and it really stuck with me. How bid of a fan am I? I’ve probably seen Alien³ and The Game more than Fincher has. Despite having followed his career from almost the beginning, I was a bit taken aback by this video, which details his subtle usage of VFX in his film.
Here too are a few favorite videos:
Everyone loves a little Walken in their music video.
This is literally the Citizen Kane of music videos.
Quentin Crisp on MTV, who would have thought it possible?
Author’s note: Aerosmith is terrible, but the video is another story.
You can also see the influence of David Fincher in the music videos of Michael Bay.
