So i'm writing a paper on contemporary cinema and I've reached a section where I have to mention some directors who are fundamental in terms of their "experimenting" special effects etc.. Directors who have decided to tell quite straightforward stories focusing on the incredible possibilities of special effects.. Like Robert Zemeckis (obsessed with motion capture etc yet the stories he tells are simple or even just re-telling of classics like Xmas Carol). What are other important directors in the recent history of SFX? Thanks!
