Happy Sunday everyone, and to those celebrating, a very happy holiday weekend.  Hope you're enjoying and participating in another edition of Introduce Yourself Weekend.  Now on to another edition of Coffee & Content.

First up this week, I love me a good TEDx Talk and this one from John Dufresne, How to Write a Story, certainly fits the bill.  Get yourself a backup cup of java for this vid as you may just want to watch it twice.

Next up, cinematographers and gaffers, I hear ya!  You want more content regarding lighting.  You ask, you receive.  Here's a great video from gaffer, Julian White, on deconstructing film lighting.

Remember, as I give to you, I ask that you give to others.  Please share this content with all those who you believe would benefit from viewing.

And, of course, I welcome your thoughts and musings in the comments section below.  Step right up and don't be shy.

Enjoy the remainder of your (Introduce Yourself) weekend!
