Happy first Sunday of December, everyone. 

Today I have two videos for you that I think you'll enjoy quite a bit.  First up, what makes a great villain?  The video essay Crash of Ideologies - Crafting the Perfect Villain explores the relationship between some of film's most memorable heroes and villains.

Second, a terrific video from Film Courage featuring one of our favorite Stage 32 educators, James Kicklighter.  James, a writer, director and mentor to many a filmmaker, explains the first 5 things a director should do on set. 

(Related...To see James' webinars for Stage 32, Deconstructing Oscar Winning Films: Spotlight, Network and All the President's Men and Writing the Producible Low Budget Script click here)

As always, I ask you to pay it forward by sharing this content on your other social media channels or through any other means you deem worthy!

Enjoy and have a terrific remainder of your weekend!
