Happy Sunday Creative Army!

First of all, congratulations to all of you who have already participated in our monthly Introduce Yourself Weekend! Thousands of connections have been made between entertainment creatives and professionals from every corner of the globe. Whether you are a long-time member, or brand new to Stage 32, take a moment to pop over to the Introduce Yourself Lounge and say hello before the end of the weekend. Now, grab some fresh coffee and let's dive into this week's content - holiday style.

First up, Netflix UK recently released an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of ELF. Despite this movie's massive success after its release, Elf was shot with a low budget and major time constraints. In this video, they explain the ins and outs of how they pulled off making one of the most successful holiday movies of all time. 

Next up, Shutterstock put together a practical guide on how you can upcycle your holiday lights and use them for creating content! This video gives examples for both vlog-style videos, as well as some amazing cinematic uses for holiday lights. 

As always 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! Tag them below!
