Jersey City, New Jersey, The film and media resource, review, and entertainment website announces the launch of a new multimedia timeline spanning the fifty-year career of thriller genre genius Alfred Hitchcock. The timeline is set to launch at the portal on May 15, 2005.

A master of suspense and psychological drama, the British-born director has over thirty films accredited to his name including the classics Vertigo, Rear Window, North By Northwest and The Birds. But Hitchcock is probably most well-known for the blood splattered shower murder in the film Psycho, cited not only for its startling portrayal of psychosis and family but also its dynamic camera angles, making it one of the most innovative horror films of all time.

Launching May 15, the Hitchcock multimedia timeline will be a valuable resource tool for professional filmmakers and Hitchcock scholars, a source of fun trivia for movie fans, and a resource for film buffs looking for all of the mystery master’s cameo appearances. The timeline will include slideshows, synopses, production notes, trivia, animation, and sound bytes spanning from Hitchcock’s directorial debut in 1925 with the British/ German film The Pleasure Garden to his final major work Family Plot in 1976.

By Hand Media, the multimedia and custom publishing company that owns and operates, is currently seeking sponsorship opportunities, including a launch poster, film industry mailing, newsletter email blast and online banner ad, for the project.

Other multimedia timelines created by the company include Black Horror Film History, which was launched in 2004, Greatest Spy Films of All Time, launching later this year and Most Kinetic Kung Fu Films Ever Unleashed, which will also launch in late 2005. Other upcoming director profiles include Brian De Palma, Stanley Donen and Shaft director Gordon Parks. All of these timelines include photos, animation, sound clips, production notes, synopses and release dates.
