David FincherDavid Fincher

David Fincher, the daring maverick behind many of Hollywood's most adored films, started his journey in the realm of music videos. Before he shook the world with cinematic titanics such as "Fight Club" and "The Social Network," Fincher marked his territory in music by lending his knack for dark aesthetics and meticulous attention to detail to various famous artists. His portfolio is as extensive as it is impressive, spanning the likes of Michael Jackson's "Who Is It," Aerosmith's "Janie's Got a Gun," Madonna's "Vogue," and many more.

It's fascinating to see how Fincher’s style evolved. Arguably his most iconic work was Paula Abdul’s “Straight Up,” where he played around with the black and white, mimicking the style of classic Hollywood films, resulting in an unforgettable music video. Madonna's "Express Yourself" holds the record for one of the most expensive music videos ever made, a testament to Fincher's grand and ambitious vision. A cat named Otto, who was a regular in Fincher's videos and even made it to his films, was almost a signature of sorts! From George Michael to Rick Springfield, Fincher's eclectic artistic vision elegantly composed music videos that often outshone the tracks they accompanied, showcasing an exciting career destined for much grander narrative stages. The influence of this visually haunting and compelling director in the realm of music videos is nothing short of legendary.
