Hi! This is a fully free community of charge where knowledge, opinions and images can be exchanged.
What we do?
We are a group of fans of Italian cinema and we decided to use our passion 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. They are the so-called "generici cinematografici". In some years we have done justice to many of our 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.
How to capture a still images from a movie?
There are many softwares appropriate. Among the most simple is Power DVD, but the program is not free. A freeware program fit for purpose is also 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, you can read this little guide.
How to upload images?
You can not upload photos directly in the forum, so you need to use specialized third party websites, as Imageshack or Tynipic. Then, to insert images into your post, simply copy the code issued by site and paste in the post. It's recommended to sign up, otherwise the images after a while may disappear.
Can I put a movie title in the filmography of the actor?
Unless you have not begun the discussion, or you're not a moderator, you can not post the title of a film directly in the filmography of the actor (at the first post). This is to protect the jobs of all. The first available moderator has the responsibility to verify your work and update the filmography.
How do I know which movies and snapshots have already been found?
Simply using the google search bar located in the top of the forum. Write the name of the actor by the name of the movie to get the results immediately.
