An old friend of David Fincher since the ILM years, Thatcher was one of his first collaborators, his partner, production designer, and “comedic sidekick”, during the production of the “Smoking Fetus” commercial for the American Cancer Society and the first music videos for Rick Springfield, Christopher Cross, and The Motels.
For a full decade, since January 2007, the FincherFanatic Blog has been the best source of information and news about one of the best directors of our time, and the unmissable gathering point for fans of exquisite and exciting filmmaking from all over the World.
Run with gentle fanaticism and infectious enthusiasm by FincherFanatic, it has officially ceased its activity due to “life catching up” with his author, who has kindly passed the torch to this site:

Not that this were actually a news-worthy item at this point: Life has caught up, as so often it does, and as I am sure you all have guessed at this point. Time for the fincherfanatic blog there is no more — enthusiasm for Fincher’s work and craft will certainly remain…
I am deeply thankful for you wonderful bunch of fincherfanatics that have assembled here over the years, thank you for all of your emails, sharing your links and resources, and once again: a heartfelt thank you to Mr. Fincher himself for allowing me to meet him for a very generous interviews a few years back. Fincher’s works have been great subjects of study for my own story-telling and film-making efforts. Creating and maintaining this blog for some years was an instructive and very very fun thing to do.

That being said, there will be no more updates to this blog. I saw Daryl has set-up a new Fincher blog over at https://thefincheranalyst.com/, which I hereby highly recommend, and I will make sure to drop by there in the future.
Daryl, good luck with that, and thank you for carrying the torch.
To everyone else, thanks for stopping by and sticking around.
It will still remain as an invaluable source of 10 years worth of information, so keep it in your bookmarks or add it if it is not there yet.
