Happy Sunday Creative Army!

Have you had a creative weekend so far? I have some content here for you that is sure to get the creative juices flowing, so grab your coffee and let's dive in.

First up, Behind the Curtain has a great interview with Rian Johnson (Knives Out, Star Wars: Episode VIII, Looper) about his writing process for Knives Out. Specifically, Rian talks about how he approached writing a modern whodunit, his experience as a writer/director, and more. Spoiler alert: if you haven't seen Knives Out yet, this video does include spoilers. 

Next up, Duneinfo recently shared a fascinating behind the scenes look at the making of the Dune score. This video features interviews with Dune composer Hans Zimmer (Inception, Dunkirk, No Time to Die, Wonder Woman 1984) and director Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner2049, Arrival, Sicario). They talk about the inspiration for the sounds of the film, the process of adapting a book to a film, and more.
