Happy Sunday, everyone.  Hope you're all enjoying the weekend.

Before we get started, a reminder that I am hosting another AMA (Ask Me Anything) this week, right here on Stage 32.  I'll be answering all your craft, business and industry questions in what is sure to be a lively session this coming Tuesday beginning at 1PM PST.  This is a FREE webcast.  You can register here.

Now...Coffee ready?  Let's roll.

First up, one of the most celebrated and studied screenplays of all time is Chinatown written by the legendary Robert Towne.  In our first video today, Jack's Movie Reviews breaks down what makes it all tick like a Swiss watch.

Next, This Guy Edits has put together a compilation reel featuring lessons from some of the top editors in the business who collectively have garnered 40 Oscar nominations and 12 wins.  Think you'll all enjoy this one immensely.

As always, I ask you to share this content with those you believe would benefit from viewing.  And, of course, I welcome your thoughts, rantings, musings and general spitballs in the comments section below.

Have a fantastic remainder of your weekend.  Enjoy the coffee and the content.
