Happy Sunday to all. Hope you're all enjoying the weekend and drinking some good coffee.  Because, you know, life is too short to drink shitty java (or wine, for that matter).

Let's roll with another edition of Coffee & Content.

We get many questions here on Stage 32 about how to go about breaking down a script. Here's a great vid by the guys at Rocket Jump Film School to get you going.

Next up, Richard Linklater has been called "The most European American filmmaker working today." Whether you agree with that or not, it's undeniable he's built his career doing it the indie way and telling the stories he wants to tell. To work in that realm, you have to exhibit extreme patience. So who better to speak on that subject as it relates to navigating the film industry landscape.

Enjoy the videos, but please don't forget to share. Throw that good karma out into the universe.

And, as always, I welcome your thoughts and musings in the comments section below. Start a conversation...It's good for your health.
