david fincher

"directing ain't about drawing a neat little picture and showing it to the cameraman. i didn't want to go to film school. i didn't know what the point was. the fact is, you don't know what directing is until the sun is setting and you've got to get five shots and you're only going to get two."

[david fincher's directing style includes dark lighting, fast cuts & low angles. he doesn't write his own screenplays, but he always picks the best writers that perfectly collaborate with his work.]

his best work
1. zodiac
a film based off the true story of the zodiac killer in the 1960's-70's.

2. se7en
a story of a serial killer who murders 7 people who each commits one of the 7 deadly sins.

3. social network
a film based off the true story of how facebook was created.
"people want to go online and check out their friends, so why not build a website that offers that? friends, pictures, profiles, whatever you can visit, browse around, maybe it's someone you just met at a party. eduardo, i'm not talking about a dating site, i'm talking about taking the entire social experience of college and putting it online."
