Happy Sunday Creative Army!

We are all on day who knows what of Quarantine, and I hope you are all staying happy, healthy, and creative. I look forward to sharing my Sunday morning Coffee & Content with you every week, so grab your coffee and get ready for some piping-hot entertainment industry content. 

First up, Indy Mogul sits down with JoJo Rabbit cinematographer Mihai Malaimare Jr. to talk about the script, lighting, and, of course, camera lenses and shot composition. This twenty-minute video is a fascinating behind the scenes look inside the making of an Oscar-Winning film. 

Next up, film editor Michal Zak has put together an amazing video on how to use editing to make the audience empathize with characters. In this particular video, he uses Big Little Lies as a case study. For a show involving so many characters and points of view, the editing plays a key role in helping the viewer not only follow the story but decide what characters in the show they side with.

Here at Stage 32, we love to share stories and knowledge with our fellow film, tv, and digital creatives. 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.
