These days, food porn videos are pretty popular, being shot and cut by those passionate about food. Now, imagine today’s most iconic directors, such as Quentin Tarantino, Michael Bay, Alfonso Cuarón, and Wes Anderson, creating those edits. That’s what director David Ma did, which led him to creating food porn videos in the style of those filmmakers.

Quentin Tarantino

The Spaghetti Western is one genre that has definitely inspired Tarantino, but this video is more spaghetti and meatballs than the former, but you get the idea. From the get-go, the edit references all the pulpy – not just tomato pulp, either – goodness of QT, with starkly contrasting colors that uses a whole lot of ketchup instead of blood, title card chapters, and even the theme by RZA from Kill Bill.

Michael Bay

Sure, he might not be the most liked on this list of auteurs, but you can’t deny that he is one. While the director of the Transformers franchise – every single one of those, too – might not be who you’d think of when it comes to waffles, there’s no doubt that Ma nailed his style.

Wes Anderson

With an aesthetic that is truly unique, you could say that Wes Anderson seems like the easiest to parody. But when you factor in all the elements that make up an Anderson flick, you’ll realize that it’s harder than you think. But Ma made it work, having chosen the right food to feature, which is almost perfect.

Alfonso Cuarón

What if Alfonso Cuarón, the filmmaker behind Gravity and Children of Men, made pancakes? Again, you may not have ever asked yourself that question, but it’s a good thing David Ma did, as the result is a cinematic journey into the finest of breakfast foods: pancakes.
