This Summer, I am going to be running a Ratings Project for Directors
. Unlike the main Ratings Project, this will be a snapshot of where these directors rise and fall right now. Once the data is collected, the Project will be over.
Initial grouping will be selected based on the level of participation each director has received in their Individual Thread
. (The number of votes in their polls not counting 'Haven't Seen Any'.)
I plan to start with the newer Active directors, move into the Living Legends and then fade into the niche filmmakers.
After that I will switch to Obscure and Inactive building to the final group of legendary filmmakers who always seem to come out on top of projects like this. Once that is done, I'll compile a list of Directors who don't have a poll on the Boards yet.
I will admit my faults right up front. I will probably forget a name or accidentally place a retired person among the Active. (Right now I have Hayao Miyazaki among the Living Legends because I doubt he will be completely Inactive.) I'm sure to get some spelling wrong, especially in regards to Asian surnames. I'm also nervous about the math involved in calculating the score. If anyone would like to help with that PM me. I'd love the assist.
Those of you who are too new to remember The Ratings Project, it was the coolest thing ever back in 2012 and you can read the complete instructions here
The first step is for you to answer as many Director Polls where you have an answer, while I compile the lists.
