Simply put, name a famous filmmaker, and the replies will describe what the result would be if s/he was directing an EVA series/movie

Stanley Kubrick:

-Many more symmetrical shot compositions.
-Much more use of wide angle shots.
-Much more Kubrick Stare shots of the pilots.
-even more sexual imagery.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

Chuck Jones:

-Facial expressions that'll express the inner emotions in 10 seconds
-Witty one-liners that'll expose how self-delusional the characters really are
-Waiting for it to be funny

Ikuhara:

-Explore the sexuality of everyone
-Make you laugh for no reason
-Have battles take place over rock songs that no otaku knows about or songs that doesn't make sense at first viewing

Charlie Chaplin:

-Explore Shinji/Rei and/or Shinji/Asuka
-Put in drama in an overly comedic experience
-Have set pieces that'll inspire comedians decades from now

I'd really like to see Ikuhara direct something Eva related.

My candidates for directing Evangelion:

David Lynch
Darren Aronofsky
Oliver Stone
Francis Ford Coppola
Ridley Scott
Stanley Kubrick
Christopher Nolan
Zack Snyder
James Cameron

Their films have a lot in common with Evangelion.
I carry out things right to the end. No. Matter. What.

LYNCH WOULD BE THE BEST EVER.

Cronenberg. Can you imagine that? The tight character studies, combined with questions of humanity mingled into gripping and skincrawling body horror?

I wish someone would make a Tex Avery version of Evangelion. Just so I can see Kaworu pull up a "Silly, isn't it" sign.

It's not easy...being me....
Having to save the world at only...fourteen....
When I think it would be nicer to be boring, and bland, or unknown...
Or something much more normal like that....

:shinji_boohoo:

It's not easy...being me....
It seems you're so small compared to other things
And people only want you when you can do things like fight off Angels
As they fall from the sky....

:shinji_blush:

But being me is all I can be
And I can be kind and sweet and gentle and free
When I cook a meal or play a song or just listen to someone who really needs an ear
Or kind sympathy

:shinji_eyebrow:

When me is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder? Why
Wonder, I'm me...and it'll do fine. It's beautiful!
And I think it's who I want to be....
