David Fincher Style

David likes to map out camera movements with computer-generated imagery, commission intricate sets, then gets heavily involved in post-production, and also re-shoot footage after the principal photography has wrapped. Fincher does not normally use hand-held cameras when he shoots a film, he prefers cameras on a tripod. David’s most frequent use of a hand-held camera was for Seven, in which five scenes were shot that way.

Fincher also likes to confuse audiences with his camerawork. Close-ups are also uncommon in Fincher’s films, and he then tries to move his cameras as little as possible. The interior of a refrigerator can also be seen in a number of Fincher’s films.

In a Blu-ray bonus featurette of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, David stated: “I think people are perverts. I’ve maintained that. That’s the foundation of my career.”
