They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but it's not like any of these guys need to be flattered. 

Shutterstock created this tribute to modern directors to show off what can be done with its library of stock footage, but it really shows that Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson, David Fincher, Alfonso Cuaron and Terrence Malick are so influential, even stock footage has started to mirror their iconic styles. 

The Anderson, Malick and Fincher sections are dead-on, the Tarantino section isn't perfect (digital blood in a Tarantino film? Never!) but it's still fun to watch.
