Hey everyone, it is D.J. Heinlein from the blog site Matte Havoc. The twenty-seventh installment of The LAMBs in the Director’s Chair will leave you straight tripping. The first movie I have ever watched that was directed by movie director Ken Russell was the cult classic Altered States (1980) starring William Hurt, which I still pull from my DVD collection from time to time and watch it all over again. The film has not aged a bit for me. Ken Russell is a clear visionary with designing strong and powerful images in his films that will stick with the viewer long after viewing. In fact, the Norwegian band A-ha recreated the climactic scene from Altered States in their music video for “Take On Me” (which you can view the music video by clicking here). I definitely recommend grabbing a copy of his films and making a marathon night of it.
Now for those of you who have never participated in this event before I would like to present the basic list of instructions and rules for participation in the series. The golden guideline would be that all participants must be a current member of the LAMBs or at least on the waiting list for approval to become a member. The second guideline of participation in the series would be for everyone to write and publish an article about the candidate who has been selected for the event. The focus of every article must stay within the arena of the person’s career as a movie director. The third and final item on the list of guidelines is an uncompromising rule of meeting the deadline for submission. Every article that you would like to submit for the event must be e-mailed to DJ Heinlein [ firstname.lastname@example.org ] by 10 PM the night before the first day of the event. If you would like to submit an article that you published a couple of months or years ago I will accept them for participation in the event. Make sure to include a direct URL link to every article that you would like to submit. There is no minimum or maximum number of articles that can be submitted.
On a side note I usually ignore e-mails filled with explanations and plans of publishing an article for the event. My inbox fills up very quickly with submissions for this event and I might over look a submission by accident if I am spending time deleting e-mails that are filled with explanations about future publishing instead of valid and direct links to articles that are already available online. The best way to get involved in the series is to publish the article and then submit the link by e-mail. No explanations are necessary. If you have any questions about the event you can e-mail them to me and I will respond as quickly as possible. Listed below are a few promotional graphics that you can post on your blog site to help promote the event. Have fun and knock yourself out with your reviews and editorials.
