Coffee & Content - Studios vs. Streaming Platforms & Actors on Actors with Tom Hanks & Renée Zellweger

Posted by Richard "RB" Botto

Happy Sunday Creative Army!

2020 is just around the corner, and we could not be more excited for the New Year. 2019 was full of some amazing content and community here at Stage 32, and 2020 promises to be even better. Now, are you ready for the final edition of Coffee and Content 2019? Grab your coffee and get ready for some piping hot content. 

Our first piece of content comes from the folks over at Variety. If you are unfamiliar, Variety curates an amazing series called Actors on Actors. True to the name, actors have candid conversations amongst themselves about their work. In this particular episode, Tom Hanks & Renée Zellweger talk about their recent journeys playing characters based on beloved real people (and more!). 

Next up, The Hollywood Reporter discusses the differences between studios and streaming platforms with 'The Farewell' director, Lulu Wang. For more great interviews with powerhouse directors (such as Greta Gerwig, Martin Scorsese, Noah Baumbach, and more), check out more Close Up Roundtable Discussions curated by The Hollywood Reporter. 

p.s. - You'll notice both pieces of today's content are curated by major industry publications. Let this be your friendly reminder to add reading the trades every day to your list of New Year's resolutions!

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! You can keep up with all of our content by subscribing to the Stage 32 YouTube.
