What's up, Creative Army. Happy Sunday to you and to all our incredible moms around the world, a very Happy Mother's Day.

As a reminder, we're gearing up for a jam packed couple of weeks at Cannes. If you're attending, remember to RSVP to all our events HERE.

Now, whaddaya say we dive in to another edition of Coffee & Content?

Everyone likes crackling dialogue in their movies, but for most writers, the practice is easier said than done. And sometimes what's in your head, doesn't quite come across the same way on the page. From Film Courage, our 1st video today provides 10 tips toward making your dialogue sing.

There's nothing that can kill an action sequence than, well, bad action. In my 2nd video today, our friends at Film Riot explore what it takes to get it right each and every time.

As always, I ask that you share this content with other who may benefit from viewing.

And, of course, I welcome your thoughts and musings in the comments section below. You guys have been bringing the goods the last few weeks...Don't stop now!

Enjoy the remainder of your weekend and the coffee and content!
