John and Craig check character blindspots, looking at how ‘over-security’ drives characters to humor and heartbreak. We also discuss natural structure: how certain events (weddings, sports, school) can create narrative scaffolding.

The death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust has the industry talking about safety. Craig explains the protocols for guns on sets, while John urges decision-makers not to over-focus on the blanks-versus-vfx debate. More crew members die driving home from sets than on them.

In our bonus segment for premium members, we discuss work-life balance and the myths of time management.
