Happy Sunday Creative Army!

Here's hoping you had a happy, healthy, and creative week. I've got my coffee in hand and some epic content to share with you today. Let's get inspired, shall we?

First up, the folks over at Aputure have curated an excellent video with 7 Tips for Telling Story with Lighting. Filmmaking is an incredibly collaborative medium. No matter what discipline you work in, every job on a production is, in one way or another, there to serve the story. This video highlights the ways in which cinematography and lighting can help shape your film's narrative. 

Next up, our friends over at Studio Binder have put together a quick video illustrating how to master the subtle art of Dark Comedy. This video uses the film The Lobster (starring Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Olivia Colman, and John C. Reilly) to illustrate 3 ways to portray dark comedy using tone, casting, and cinematography. 

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! You can keep up with all of our content by subscribing to the Stage 32 YouTube.
