I'll take my favorite director of all-time:

Alfred Hitchcock




Quote:
Alfred Hitchcock did not invent modern cinema, but for much of the past century he has defined it. Inarguably the most imitated motion picture artist of all time, a slew of spine-tingling hits including Rebecca, Rear Window, Vertigo and North by Northwest brought international acclaim to the London-born director, earning him the moniker “The Master of Suspense.”

While Hitchcock’s work certainly tended toward the thrilling, it was not as much his ability to keep audiences on the edge of their seats as it was to pull them out of their chairs that made him a legend—drawing moviegoers into his films and challenging the role of viewer as detached spectator. Widely hailed as his masterpiece, 1960’s Psycho took audiences into the recesses of a disturbed mind, making use of a fast-paced, adrenaline-inducing editing style and a succession of POV shots. With a perfectly measured combination of style and innovation and seamlessly blended bits of humor and romance throughout his work, Hitchcock’s films are a whole experience, usually playing upon a variety of human emotions.

Though he was considered a legend in his own time, making more than 65 films in a career that spanned over half a century, the only Academy Award Hitchcock ever won for directing was an honorary one given in 1976, when he made history once again by uttering the briefest speech in Oscar history: “Thank you.”

Top Movies:

Psycho
Rear Window
North by Northwest
Vertigo
Rebecca
Strangers on a Train
Suspicion
Notorious
Shadow of a Doubt
Spellbound
Frenzy
The Birds
The 39 Steps
The Lady Vanishes
Dial M for Murder
The Man Who Knew Too Much ('56)
Rope
Lifeboat
The Man Who Knew Too Much ('34)
Sabotage

Tough pick. I suppose I'll take Daniel Day Lewis.

There are probably better "value" picks here but he's good for what I want.

We tried this two years ago. It was a bit more complicated than this one, but the drafting went fine. It died down after drafting finished and only a few of us actually wrote our summary posts.

Like I've always said, the best part is the actual drafting. It gets boring after that.

Kobe8 is up, has about 3 hours left. I've got to go to class.

Some of you might want to check out this, (I'm sure many of you already have)...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Film_crew

Pretty easy-to-understand breakdown of a film crew. It should give you an idea of some of the categories you might want to draft a director of... If you feel they're important to your film.

Not sure what you mean by rushed. You think the concept is raw or the draft started too quick? Because the OP was up for 31 hours before anyone actually signed up.

I'll put you down as a replacement if anyone misses two picks in a row. I don't want to go with more than 8 players, with 12 rounds it'll take way too long.

Also, for the players: Doing a good job with the pictures, but a brief accompanying summary would be great. Even if it's just a couple lines of your opinion or a copy and paste from wiki.

Fatal9, i've got you down as a judge. Gonna check through the "rate the last movie thread" and see who the movie-buffs around here are.

Kobe8's got about 45 mins. Then LittleMoney45 is up.

1st Round's gone different to how I expected. I expected Pacino and Hitchcock but not Day-Lewis and Hopkins (Who are both terrific actors, don't get me wrong), I guess drafting with your script in mind doesn't lend to just straight-up best talent available.

Not yet,
littlemoney hasn't even been given his 8 hours yet.

I'm going to make it a rule, once your pick expires (8 hours) your have 16 more hours to make your pending pick before you're booted.
That should ensure, everyone is checking this site and thread at least once every 24 hours.

Sound fair?

Nogunz and rocsteady are the two replacements, in that order (that was the order they showed interest).

I would just kick them. The less bumps the beginning of the draft has the better, and if you replace them with better known posters it's win-win. (except for the inactive guy who loses)
