The latest stop motion animation by awesome artist PES is entitled Submarine Sandwich. It's an endlessly creative take on the classic deli sub sandwich (or hero or hoagie or whatever you call it). But instead of using typical deli meats, the animation 'slices' old sports gear like boxing gloves and baseball mitts and…
The creative processes involved in writing a screenplay are as varied as the writers who work on them. In this video Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black—Milk, J.
