This Homage to Famous Modern Directors Was Made Entirely With Stock Footage Shutterstock's ode to Fincher, Anderson, Tarantino and more

Shutterstock has scoured its library of footage and music to compile a truly impressive tribute video to some of today's most visually iconic directors.

Tracking shots, wide shots, old-school technology? Yep, that's Wes Anderson. Low-light, blue-filtered, almost voyeuristic images of shadowy chambers? Totally David Fincher. Quentin Tarantino and arthouse favorite Terrence Malick also get their due.

Representing Alfonso Cuarón with random spacewalk footage a la Gravity seems a bit reductive, but otherwise, the video does a surprisingly effective job of capturing each director's aesthetic. 

If you've got an idea for more directors Shutterstock should show tribute to, you can leave a comment on the company's blog or try making your own with its in-browser editing tool, Sequence.
