Hey everyone, it is D.J. Heinlein from the blog site Matte Havoc. The twenty-ninth installment of The LAMBs in the Director’s Chair will take us back in time when the movie directors showed up for work in three piece suits and maintained an aura of professionalism. For this installment we will take a close view upon the career of a cinematic icon of directors: Cecile B. DeMille. He was the one who can be credited with turning Charlton Heston into Moses for his last directorial film The Ten Commandments (1956). His name will be forever recognized in the famous line from Sunset Boulevard (1950) when Norma Desmond utters the phrase, “All right Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up.” [video clip] To all members of the LAMB group, I wish you will have fun with producing your material for this installment!
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 [ email@example.com ] 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.
