    These reserved seats are nice. They're cushier with a lot more legroom. Thanks Steve!

    I know my first choice and I know Rain's. You better not grab my guy Steve. [​IMG]

    I'm afraid I'll be a little out of my league in this one, but I'll give it a try. 10 films sounds fine.

    - Walter.

    Gee, thanks for reserving me a seat, Steve. I'll do my best to get my butt to visit it at least every 12 hours. [​IMG]

    (I believe this is my first time participating in a draft, so pardon any rule missteps. Just set me straight with a swift kick to the reserved seat.)

    Steve,

    I was under the impression that we would be drafting cinematographers, not specific films.

    Sorry. [​IMG]

    No problem.

    Drafting cinematographers would make things a bit rough in that if we're each going to be making ten picks, that's eighty we'd need to come up with. Much better to go with the films themselves though you're welcome to pick only films by a specific cinematographer. Personally, I'm going for variety. [​IMG]

    Guess I'll go with Night of the Hunter - Stanley Cortez

    Well, since Rob isn't participating in this tourney, think I'll make the sacrifice and dedicate my first choice to an inexplicable favorite of his: [​IMG]
