Before David Fincher became an Academy Award-nominated director of films, he was a famed music video director. Among his greatest clips are works with Madonna (including “Vogue” and “Express Yourself”), George Michael and Aerosmith.
Since the debut of his first film, “Alien 3,” in 1992, Fincher has shot a relative handful of music videos. Most recently, he directed Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” in 2013 — Fincher’s first video since 2005 (Nine Inch Nails’ “Only”).
Fincher has won two Grammy Awards: for directing the Rolling Stones’ giants-walking-the-streets-of-Manhattan clip “Love Is Strong” and “Suit & Tie.”
