Greetings and salutations, Creative Army.  And a happy Sunday to you all.

Got a little French press workin'.  How about we compliment it with some content?

First up, a look at two of my favorite films, Boogie Nights and the legendary Goodfellas.  How did P.T. and Marty go about setting their mood (visually) for these films?  Our friends at Entertain the Elk break it all down in one cool, comprehensive video essay.

Next, another great video from the crew at Lessons from the Screenplay.  This time around, they're examining the power of subplots and using the crowd pleasing Hidden Figures as an example.

As always, I ask you to share this content with those you feel could benefit from viewing.  Don't be shy.  Share!  It'll make the coffee taste that much better.

And, of course, I welcome musings and thoughts in the comments section below.

Enjoy the coffee and the content.
