if that would help. As I am new to this site, I would need more information about the procedure for doing so. Please let me know if you can use my help.
So now we have this super-fantastic Top 100 Films website we need help with the individual web pages.
What we need are volunteers willing to write short 2-3 paragraph blurbs about a number of the films.
We've already had a number of people volunteering so what I'd like to do is post the films that have not been taken and ask you to sign up for one or more blurbs.
We've been pointing people to SDG's great blurb for #2 Decalogue as a terrific example: we're looking for something about plot, cinematography, and, ultimately, the meaning of the thing.
We need to reserve the right to edit your work, but we're pretty good and sensitive at the editing biz.
Here are the films that remain. As they are taken, I will edit this post to indicate that they are no longer available. Thanks again for your help. This list/website is a great credit to this community -- please pitch in as a community to help us complete all 100 pages!
PM me with your selections!
