Yea, it might just be shorter on both ends, I guess. I don't really like the idea of a top 100 visual films (or whatever other name you come up with)

It's obvious what your preference is.  I say do it how you want to do it.  You got my support wholesale.  Start it up.  If this list bombs, it's alright because you did what you really wanted to do.

I could submit a Top 50 Visual Films, but I couldn't do cinematographers at this time.

So I'm thinking an even 50/50 split between a list of cinematographers and a list of films. Anyone have any problems with that?

That's a pretty awesome idea. Even I would have trouble naming 100 DPs, but 50 sounds doable. Then we have 50 films for individual achievement. I like this.

Do you mean two lists?  Can we participate in one and not the other?

Yea, two lists. And you can participate in either, both or none.

Then I'm all for this.  That sounds like a lot of extra work, though.

I'll start with putting together a list of films, and through that I may come up with a list of C-togs.
