Lessons from David Fincher's Camera


The renowned director of "Fight Club" has one of the most interesting camera movements among contemporary filmmakers. Let's break down the Fincher style.

Fincher is a fan of using minimalist camera movement to tell stories. Many among them are meant to confuse. It's difficult for people to know if it's the camera or the subject itself that moves. The pans, tilts, match scenes, zoom-ins, are fooling, too. The Fincher camera likes to create illusions. When centralizing characters, he'll make sure there's the feeling of being "locked in", hijacking the eyes of his audience.

Watch this detailed essay on the American director's flavor for filmmaking.
