Regulation

Post by Emiliano » 26/08/2018, 12:13


Introduction
Welcome! This is a no-profit research and film exploration forum.
We are a group of fans of Italian cinema and we decided to use our time to rebuild entire filmographies of actors whose names most often are unknown and whose faces often appear for only a few seconds in a film (the so-called "generici cinematografici").
In some years we have done justice to many of our mostly unknown performers, through detailed filmographies accompanied by a large department of images from their films, photographs and more.

Why is it called "Thrilling forum"?
Simply because it all started to try to recognize some actors in some Italian Giallo films, the so called Thrillings.

This forum is especially dedicated to the actors who played in the 60s and 70s in the Italian cinema. Here they are classified according to the role mainly played in the cinema environment, during their careers. These are the sections in which they were subdivided:

Little-known actors
These are actors who have not achieved great fame in the mainstream and who usually played supporting roles (also uncredited) in many movies of their careers. Here we celebrate these actors, often forgotten, but that a lot have given to the Italian cinema.

Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia (C.S.C.)
This section is dedicated to the actors graduated at the "Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia" in Rome (C.S.C.) in 60s & 70s, the oldest Italian school foundation of teaching, research and experimentation in the field of cinematography.
Many of those actors, due to a law that allowed them to obtain state monetary benefits for productions, were included in the casts for the sole purpose of obtaining this money for production, so often they were reduced to the ground role of an extra, while sometimes appear credited in the films but in reality they did not participate at all. Here we give a little justice to their interpretations and their dream of becoming great actors.
Some famous actors of C.S.C. were Rosalba Neri, Stefano Satta Flores.

Generici cinematografici
Who is the "generico"? He is an "extra", a person who appears on the scene as a complementary numerical element of the scene without interpreting a certain character or a precise role, inserted in the scenic context in order to allow close shots and close-ups, even if he does not normally pronounce lines. Often the Generico is "elected" to "figurazione speciale / special figuration", when he have to pronounce even just one line, as example even a greeting. They are almost never credited in the movies in which they participate.

Movies Database
A full cast list of the most famous italian thrillings and the unknown actors that appears in it.

Policy
IMDb and Wikipedia
The Internet Movie Database is a great tool for work (also Wikipedia - sometimes), unfortunately they're not so reliable to take everything that writes for gold. So, we do not include the titles from IMDb and Wikipedia in our filmographies without having first the images of these roles. In summary: we accept only roles verified by us and we won't add titles in the filmographies without an image because we must verify your attribution. As for the biographical data, they can be entered with the consent of the moderators.

Adult pictures
The hot pics can be upload as you like but with the "censorship star" on the genital organs. This is not because of bigotry, but because this forum, under Italian law, is not meant to contain images of this type.

Pictures taked from the net
You don't have to steal snapshots from other sources. All uploaded snapshots must have been made by the individual user, otherwise they will be deleted.

Utilizzo delle immagini - Regolamentazione italiana
Le immagini esposte sono utilizzate solo ad uso di critica e discussione. I detentori dei diritti, qualora lo ritenessero opportuno, possono chiederne l'immediata rimozione inviando un messaggio con questo modulo.
Si rammenta che nel dicembre 2011 è stata approvata una modifica alla Legge italiana sul diritto d’autore (633/1941), che prevede l’introduzione del comma 1 bis all’articolo 70.
La nuova norma recita:
1. Il riassunto, la citazione o la riproduzione di brani o di parti di opera e la loro comunicazione al pubblico sono liberi se effettuati per uso di critica o di discussione, nei limiti giustificati da tali fini e purchè non costituiscano concorrenza all'utilizzazione economica dell'opera; se effettuati a fini di insegnamento o di ricerca scientifica l'utilizzo deve inoltre avvenire per finalità illustrative e per fini non commerciali.
(1-bis. E' consentita la libera pubblicazione attraverso la rete internet, a titolo gratuito, di immagini e musiche a bassa risoluzione o degradate, per uso didattico o scientifico e solo nel caso in cui tale utilizzo non sia a scopo di lucro. Con decreto del Ministro per i beni e le attivita' culturali, sentiti il Ministro della pubblica istruzione e il Ministro dell'università e della ricerca, previo parere delle Commissioni parlamentari competenti, sono definiti i limiti all'uso didattico o scientifico di cui al presente comma).
3. Il riassunto, la citazione o la riproduzione debbono essere sempre accompagnati dalla menzione del titolo dell'opera, dei nomi dell'autore, dell'editore e, se si tratti di traduzione, del traduttore, qualora tali indicazioni figurino sull'opera riprodotta.

How to post & upload images

Post by Emiliano » 05/09/2018, 21:49

F.A.Q.
How to capture a still image from a movie?
Two freeware program fit for purpose are Media Player Classic and VLC Player. By default VLC Player makes snapshots in PNG format. We prefer JPG format because it's smaller and faster to download. If you're not able to switch this function, read this guide.

Can I put a movie title in the filmography of the actor?
Not, you can't post the title of a film directly in the filmography of the actor (at the first post). The first available moderator has the responsibility to check your post and update the filmography with your signalation.

Can I enter a new actor who is not present?
Certainly, however, it must fall into one of the categories described above. And you must have at least 3 images of 3 different roles of him.

Do you want to identify an actor? Have you seen a movie and would like to know who is a specific actor?
Open a new topic in this forum, than upload the images of your actor. We will try to help you, if we can.

In case of urgent problems or complaints, contact the admin.


How to post in actor's topics
This is a discussion forum, but mostly a searchable document, like a book, where the reading must focus on the actor and not on closely personal considerations.

Comments in the topics of the actors should be limited (there is a chat for this purpose), while biographical data or considerations directly related to the film should be entered. A post made only of "How nice!" "Extraordinary" must not find space in the actor's topic. For speeches and more you can always use the chat or make new topics in the "Blue Bar" forum.

To make the reading of the pages more pleasant and above all make the title of the film from which the snapshot is taken, more clener, it is necessary to adopt a minimum of formatting to insert the posts. Nothing complicated or too much work!

First of all, write your line in tiny block letters: Title of the movie (in bold style - read further below how to do it), year of production (in brackets), role / part played by the actor (in italic). Then write your comment, as you like. In the case of a "generico", specifies only when the actor is credited.

Example:
Perché non facciamo l'amore? (1981) as Dental patient
IMAGE
style3.jpg

In the editing layout:
style4.jpg
bold-style-1.jpg
bold-style-2.jpg
bold-style-3.jpg

Uploading images
We do not like images uploaded on the third-party hosting sites. To insert the image directly in the forum, read the follow guide.
Since we have unlimited web space to upload images, we do not use external hosting sites.
The maximum size for each individual attachment is 1 MB, but files of a much smaller size are preferable!

The uploading procedure is very simple:
  1. Click on Attachments
  2. Add files
  3. Plance inline
It is also possible to drag the image directly from the folder on the PC to the post window, to load it.
