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 in to this week's fresh content.

First up, BAFTA Guru has compiled some key bits of advice about the craft of acting from legendary actor Kate Winslet. Kate shares advice about letting go of your preparation, leaving room for the creativity with others on set, how to perform in movies based on books, why you should never rehearse in front of a mirror, and more. 

Next up, The Hollywood Reporter does a roundtable series, and in this video, they sat down with some of the top screenwriters from TV and film alike. Learn from Jordan Peele (Us, Get Out), Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, Molly's Game) Emily V. Gordon (The Big Sick, Little America, Crashing), Anthony McCarten (The Two Popes, Bohemian Rhapsody, The Darkest Hour), Darren Aronofsky (Mother!, Requiem for a Dream), and Fatih Akin (In the Fade, New York, I Love You). This powerhouse group of writers talk about the role of storytellers in society, how your writing relates to your audience, the differences in writing for various genres, and more. 

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!
