Seven, The Social Network, Fight Club, Gone Girl are some of the David Fincher films you may be familiar with. He is one of the best working filmmakers in American Cinema bringing a unique approach to his films.

But did you know due to a nightmare experience on his feature debut ALIEN 3 he swore off directing feature films.

“I thought I’d rather die of colon cancer than do another movie”

Thankfully he got past that and continued .

His passion for filmaking led him to start as a child making films when he got an 8mm camera for his 8th birthday. After high school he worked for Korty films and then staff of Lucas’s special effects company, Industrial Light and Magic.

The path wont always be straight, it wont be easy, at all. But if you love it enough, it gets you through the tough times till you get to the victory.
