A journey of collectors. Will you help me find the title cards for your favorite directors?
A collage of screenshots for every filmography.Name a director and I will help you, or
I name one and you help me. One for All and all for One!

Some directors are of course more interesting than others, to do. For example, Godard would be great and very difficult, when W.Allen would be pointless doing since he uses the same title card in most (all?) of his films.

Make a collage, or a gif? I think a collage would be less confusing. A fancy banner like you only can!

Good question. In that banner gif I had all shorts of aspect ratios and I simply cropped the bigger images so that they looked good in a minimum 400x270 pixels. You can do the same or make a collage of shots one next to the other.

And I've just resolved to start a Sirk-a-thon on the heels of enjoying All That Heaven Allows so very much, so I'm going to grab as much as I can off Surrealz and KG and then get to GIF-ing. And then of course to watching.

Nice nice, my film studies class is doing a whole semester on Sirk. I endorse Bright's picks and Imitation of Life (probably his best). All I Desire and Magnificent Obsession make for gloriously overblown melodrama. I enjoyed his German films too (Schlußakkord and Zu neuen Ufern) but hopefully you can find prints of decent quality.

Cool thread too, but I'm not sure what director I should tackle (yet).

I have the Douglas Sirk entry almost ready but I'll post it tomorrow probably. I have Has Anyone Seen my gal, All I desire, Magnificent Obsession, All that heaven Allows , Written on the Wind, The Tarnished Angels, Imitation of Life, Shockproof, There's Always Tomorrow, and A Time to Love and a Time to Die.
If you can help with any other Sirk that you own, just pm me a screenshot within the next few hours.

These happy endings all express the weak and sly promise that the world is
not rotten and out of joint but meaningful and ultimately in excellent condition.

I think it's an interesting concept. You can get a general idea of a director's style just by looking at those title cards.
If I was a director I'd pick the prettiest images to be the background of my name. I wonder if they spend time thinking how their name should appear.
