Happy Sunday Creative Army!

Here's hoping you had a happy, healthy, and creative week. I've got some fresh coffee in hand and some amazing content coming in hot. Let's dive in, shall we?

First up, The Hollywood Reporter has an all-star roundtable all about creativity featuring some of the biggest names in entertainment. This video features Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton the musical, In the Heights), Donald Glover (Atlanta, Community, and hip hop superstar Childish Gambino), Damien Chazelle (La La Land, Whiplash), and Issa Rae (Insecure, Little). This epic panel is moderated by none other than actor, director, and producer Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Avengers, Swingers, Chef). Plus, if you want a little more Hamilton in your weekend, be sure to check out our recent blog about The Making of "We are Freestyle Love Supreme", Lin'Manuel Miranda's pre-Hamilton hip hop improv group. 

Next up, cinematographer Danny Gevirtz has put together 20 tips to know before you step on a film set. Whether you are new to film production, or simply need a refresher course after this long production hiatus, this video has a ton of helpful tips to help you be prepared next time you are on set. Danny covers everything to on set lingo, what to wear (and not wear), safety, and more.
