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.

This Is What A Wes Anderson Bar Would Look Like

Director Wes Anderson is often praised for his unique visual approaches when creating movies. Anderson is best known for films like The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Royal Tennenbaums and Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. We’ve joked around at the office that the minute they announced a Wes Anderson theme park, we’d be the first ones in line.

Turns out that dream isn’t TOO far off. At least, for now, there’s a Wes Anderson bar out there.

Designed by Anderson himself, Milan’s Bar Luce has all the quirks that the director is known for. Sure, there’s no anthropomorphic foxes for Bill Murray in a beanie, but it definitely looks like something right out of an Anderson movie set.

The bar is reminiscent of Italy in the ’50s albeit with Anderson’s signature style.
