Hey everyone! It’s Nick from The Cinematic Katzenjammer. I’m back with another edition of the Director’s Chair. For future reference, I’ll be doing one edition, then a few weeks break, and then another, if that makes sense. 

Along with any movie reviews you send in, concerning the director of the month, I would ask you include a score out of five for the film, similar to what you would do for the LAMBScores feature. This way, after the end of each month, I can come up with an average “score” for the director, and we can compare him/her to those of the past. It’s a small addition, but I see that it may prove rather interesting to compare results. I also will now include original images or videos related to the director. Had you found someone’s work so inspiring you wanted to put together a montage of scenes from their films? Or even watched something and needed to draw a picture. All is welcome. As are other works of art, from poems to stories, if it is indeed related to the director. 

For this edition, I wanted to focus on a duo of directors, both with a handful of films that share similar themes. Of course, I also wanted to turn the attention to African American directors for Black History Month. I mean no offense by it and both directors are worthy of getting recognized. So for this edition of the Director’s Chair, the attention will be put on Antoine Fuqua and John Singleton

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 Nick Powell [ 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.

I only ask that you send me links to articles already published. Nothing is published in this article by itself, as it really is just a gateway to a bunch of different links.
