Standard Draft Rules:
1. Five rounds, plus a bonus.
2. Drafting will occur in each drafter's assigned daily time-slot.
3. If everyone in the time-slot immediately preceding yours has drafted, then the next slot can go, so forth and so on.
4. Once a film has been drafted, it is taken off the table and can no-longer be drafted.
5. Sign-ups go until Wednesday the 18th.
6. Draft starts Monday, Jan 23rd.
Rules for This Draft:
1. Films must have received a United States theatrical release between January 1, 1940 and December 31, 1949.
2. All genres are eligible - animation, documentary, etc.
3. All lengths are eligible - if you want to do an entire draft of 40s WB/Disney shorts, you can.
4. It is helpful, but not required, for your film to be currently available or available at some point. If you're drafting a "lost film," then providing some kind of verifiable documentation when you draft is preferred.
5. THE NAZI RULE: Films made under Nazi Germany, 1933-1945, are ineligible except for the following on the basis of historical and/or artistic purposes: Olympia, Triumph of the Will, Jud Suss. I don't believe anyone would pick these films, but hey, it's CHUD, shit's crazy, let's have a debate.
6. You can draft an entire year of a serial, but not beyond that a single calendar year. So, for example - and I'm not too familiar here - you couldn't draft "Flash Gordon (1941-1945)," but if there was a storyline from a particular year you wanted to draft that ran entirely in 1943, you could do that. And obviously, you wouldn't be able to draft an entire year of Merry Melodies or something like that - thinking that the drafted narrative must be self-contained to qualify.
