This short clip from Shutterstock compiles stock video footage shot in the styles of five different directors. Directors' Cuts pays tribute to the work of Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, David Fincher, Alfonso Cuaron and Terrence Malick.

The clip includes not just their characteristic cinematography and general esthetics, but often pays homage to specific films they've done. For example, the Wes Anderson-inspired stock video footage showcases the mustard font and opening sequences as well as the lit up map one might see in Moonrise Kingdom or The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Meanwhile the homage to Alfonso Cuaron heavily references Gravity while the Quentin Tarantino themed footage focuses on keywords such as blood, style and more blood.
