Ever wondered how Werner Herzog makes eggs? How Stephen Spielberg cooks his Thanksgiving turkey? Whether Ingmar Bergman would put pork in his collard greens? How Tommy Wiseau would prepare his infamous glass of hot water? Well if these thoughts have ever crossed your mind, food stylist David Ma has a special treat for you with his #foodfilms series. This beautifully shot and styled selection of food tutorials re-imagines the popular internet trend by placing some of the most famous directors on Earth behind the camera.
These shorts perfectly encapsulate each iconic director’s style. Wes Anderson’s s’mores are whimsical, sweet, and overtly stylized; Alfonso Cuarón’s pancakes are epic and very, very shiny. Quentin Tarantino‘s spaghetti and meatballs leans heavily into the splatter and (pun intended) the spaghetti westerns that the bad boy director loves so much; And Micheal Bay‘s waffles? Well they’re as messy and explosive as you’d expect from the man who’s bought us five Transformers movies.
