A very Happy Thanksgiving week to you Creative Army!

This Sunday, we've got some great content for all you filmmakers out there. My coffee's brewing, how about yours?

First on the docket, can your project's title shape how you write your story? Writer/Director Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit, Thor: Ragnarok, What We Do in the Shadows) thinks so! Learn more in his interview with our friends over at IndieWire

Next up, film editor Tom Cross (La La Land, Whiplash, First Man, Joy) tells the folks at BAFTA how music can shape the process of editing a movie. Tom edited La La Land in a room that shared a door with the film's composer Justin Hurwitz. Needless to say, they worked pretty closely together on the film to get the music just right in the final edit. 

Here at Stage 32, we love to share stories and knowledge with our fellow film fans. Know someone who would love this content? Share it with them! You can keep up with all of our content by subscribing to the Stage 32 YouTube

Have an amazing Thanksgiving!
