Happy Sunday, everyone.  Hope you're all well rested and ready for some quality content.

In this edition of Coffee & Content, we begin with the comedy of the Coen Brothers.  For my money, no filmmakers have embraced a wider range of comedy over the last 30 years than the Coens.  Sometimes darkly funny, other times broadly humorous, the Coens manage to mine laughs out of just about any scenario.  How do they get it done?  Our first video deconstructs the ins and outs of what makes it all come together.

Next up, say what you will about M. Night Shyamalan's films, the guy has carved out a very long career in an industry that eats 'em up and spits 'em out.  He's taken a bunch of arrows through the years, but he keeps coming back for more.  So what makes him tick?  Our second video today provides some insights and undoubtedly will have you motivated as well.

As I bring value to you with this content, I ask that you bring value to others by paying it forward and sharing the material with your audiences on social media or by any other means necessary.  Embrace that collaborative spirit.

And, as always, I welcome your thoughts on the content in the comments section below.

Enjoy the remainder of your weekend, the coffee and the content.
