The Tumblr round-up is a compilation of images, links, posters, stories, videos and so on, taken from the Sound On Sight Tumblr account.

Oscar winning director David Fincher started off making big budget music videos for artists such as Madonna, Billy Idol, Paula Abdul, Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones, Roy Orbison, George Michael and even Michael Jackson. Michael Bay also got his start with music videos working at Propaganda Films, just two weeks after finishing his post-graduate degree. Bay’s success in music videos gained the attention of producers Jerry Bruckheimer and Don Simpson, who selected him to direct his first feature-length film, Bad Boys. What I didn’t know and perhaps you didn’t as well, is that Bay seems to have been heavily influenced by Fincher copying many of his shots and scenes from his music videos and inserting it into his own work. See for yourself.
