  1.

  2. This semester has been good to me, creatively. Last month, I finished my first feature play, and earlier today, after an all-nighter, I finished my first feature film. First drafts for both, but yeah, it's exciting.
  3. Actually you're good. Surprised I didn't catch that. If it's alright with you, I'll add him in next week at a scheduled update. (I also didn't know if Timur Bekmambetov is considered non-white since he's of European origin, but Kazakh people are considered descendants of Mongols, which is obviously Asian.)
  4. I find it oddly peaceful in its organized chaos tbh
  5. The best way for me to do that is just to link you here. I don't have the grosses listed there but all are labeled under the format of "straight white male" but switching out what makes them fit this list. If a movie is co-directed or not is not listed though.
  6. As Tele stated, a few of these are co-directed (mostly animated films, but there might be a couple live-action ones that have a male and female directing team.) I know Frozen, the Despicable Me movies, and Zootopia all fall under "several directors, but at least one isn't a hetero white male."
  7. I can get that. My biggest thing I noticed while making the list is how many more gay white males are on the list compared to any other qualifier. BTW, fun fact, there are only two directors on this list that fit for more than one section: Lee Daniels (a gay African-American) and Jennifer Yuh Nelson (a Asian-American female).
  8. Hey, y'all. Since I finally posted my top of the year, I wanted to share my fave short of last year with everyone. I think @Tele Came Back, @4815162342, @Spaghetti of 1000 Planets, and any other Mad Max fan will get a kick out of it. I love it. Check it out.
  9. I made this during my self-imposed exile of the boards. Essentially, this is a top 100 list of films directed by people who DON'T fall under the category of "straight white male." Obviously (and sadly), a vast majority of films are directed by people who fall into that category, so this is a list intended make one think about the diversity behind the camera of blockbusters. I will update this weekly.
