If Movie Directors Made Recipe Videos, This Is What They Would Look Like

Every famous movie director in Hollywood has a distinct stylistic approach to how they present their movies. It’s gotten to the point where you can tell who directed a film based on their differing artistic touches, such as JJ Abrams’ constant use of bright lens flares in Star Trek and Martin Scorsese’s flawless execution of the tracking shot, where one camera follows a character through multiple settings in a continuous segment. While these masters of the movie set tend to work on big screen productions and probably wouldn’t pull away to make a short food video concept, one food artist has taken the styles of several well-known directors and turned them into awesome recipe videos.

That food artist is David Ma, the same genius mind who was behind the concept and videography for Foodbeast’s Jeff’s Table video series. He’s taken his knowledge of different filmmakers’ approaches and signature nuances and directed them into fun little recipe shorts based on these different directorial styles.

Michael Bay, for example, is notorious for his overuse of explosions and deep, dramatic music, all of which get perfectly transformed in the form of a waffle recipe.

Ma has also turned Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity into a literal work of pancake art.

The Grand Budapest Hotel from film maestro Wes Anderson was reimagined as a s’mores recipe,

And even Quentin Tarantino got in on the action with this fun Kill Bill homage to spaghetti and meatballs.

If you’re a movie buff, David Ma’s entire video series is sure to leave you laughing at the similarities but also loving the amazing works composed here. If you’re not, the videos will still definitely make you hungry.

The Original Got Milk Commercial was Directed by Michael Bay

got-milk-aaron-burr-ad

You might not be old enough to remember the first Got Milk? commercial, but if you do, you know how awesome it is.

A history buff gets the chance of a lifetime: the opportunity to win $10,000 if he can answer the question “Who shot Alexander Hamilton in that famous duel?” Unfortunately for him, he’s got a mouthful of peanut butter, a house full of Alex Hamilton artifacts, and no milk to rinse out his mouth. Sounds pretty epic right?

Well, it turns out that the ad’s epicness isn’t too surprising when you consider that Michael Bay directed the masterpiece. Yeah, Michael Bay, of Transformers, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, and Bad Boys 2. The guy famous for explosions and crazy battle scenes got his start making milk commercials. That’s a win for foodies everywhere. Only one question remains: what director can we convince to make a commercial for Sriracha?

Now, that would be something.
