Here’s a deal & opportunity that does not come around often. This opportunity falls in the continuing education department this week. An opportunity to learn from someone successful in the field of film-making. Spike Lee is teaming up with Master Class to offer a much broader audience, the opportunity to learn the ins & outs of the film making industry, from an accomplished individual who’s worn a lot of hats from writing, directing, acting etc. Spike Lee offers the chance to learn from his experiences, and help guide inspired filmmakers, actors, writers along their personal journey.
Spike has well over 30 years of experience and is opting to share his knowledge to aspiring filmmakers, and people of the arts. He chose Master class to expand his reach as many people may not be able to attend or sign up for his classes at NYU.
The online class with Lee is offering a chance to analyze his works both on the page and on screen, covering the technicalities of writing stories, working with actors, camera angles, financing, and choosing music score. He addresses the hurdles facing first-time filmmakers, and shares his own experience overcoming obstacles in the film industry. Lee also discusses how he has tried to affect culture with his movies, and he urges students to be conscious of the relationship between their work and the world.
Registration & enrollment in Spike Lee’s online class is $90 with lifetime access. Customers also have the option to pay $180 per year for unlimited access to all existing and upcoming classes, not just Spike Lee course but a host of tutorials from Werner Herzog (filmmaking), Hans Zimmer (film scoring), Steve Martin (comedy), Aaron Sorkin (screenwriting), and Shonda Rhimes (writing for television). Upcoming classes are scheduled from Martin Scorsese (filmmaking), Ron Howard (directing), Helen Mirren (acting), Samuel L. Jackson (acting), and Judd Apatow (comedy).

With mother’s day around the corner, many are probably wondering what to get. Well, I could only offer some idea’s, but before we come to that let's tap into mother’s day, motherhood and the maternal bonds mothers influence on society. I'm truly grateful for mines and all my adopted and inherited moms. This is a great opportunity to let these mothers know just how special they are, and just how much you appreciate them and their sacrifices. So, when thinking of that special gift try and pick something that expresses that appreciation.
Now, great news just about every one of our affiliates got something great to offer those very special mothers out there. The goal is finding that special gift that she will truly enjoy and appreciate. Now, you can always give her a gift card to her favorite store or restaurant etc, that would be easy if you are terrible at guessing what moms like. There's always flowers or plants from ProFlowers, chocolate from Godiva, jewelry from Pandora or cashmere slippers for moms feet. You could also treat moms to a Concert or Broadway Play. Now there are also non-traditional gifts that are just as good like Amazon Prime, tons of benefits that are worth checking she may benefit and enjoy. “This Mother’s Day, show the strongest woman you know where her strength comes from”, with Ancestry.com. She would love that, trace the family's history and follow the story to its early beginnings. This would make for a legendary mother’s day.
Now, you can always take mom out for dinner. Zagat is a great resource for finding top-rated restaurants in your area, but book early so you don't miss out on your dining choice. There are still many choices to discover, we encourage you to visit our affiliates page.

If you love music and like to rock out every chance you get, well, I have something you music lovers would truly enjoy! How would you like to have access to an extensive music library of your music favorites for "free"? Yeah, that's right! free, awesome. You can rock out at home, work or in your vehicle, it makes the ride home or out on that road trip that much more awesome, for sure right! I got two sites for you, which both got apps for download in google play store. They are available to Apple users as well. So back to that extensive library you can search by: artist, by albums, by singles, classic greats, world music from all around the world. The options are staggering, but now the disclaimer - new albums may take a little while to load up for full access, but singles for the new album should be available for your listening pleasure. MusixHub & Cliggo Music are two interesting music streaming sites with app download options for better user experience. Both are pretty good, some may prefer one over the other. I encourage you to check em both out and pick your favorite. You may have to create a free account in order to create and save your personal playlist and mixes. It's well worth checking out, now I can't say how they rank towards the premium services like iTunes and Spotify etc. What I can say is I'm certain you will find them quite enjoyable.

Have you ever wondered how much it would cost to see all the movies in the theater? With a
movie ticket costing on average 15-20$ you would assume it would be expensive, right?
But I’m here to tell you it actually isn’t! It would only cost you 9.95$/month with MoviePass.
MoviePass is basically a debit card but for movies. It allows you to watch a movie a day at just
about any theater you can think of. The only downside is the deal does not include movies with
special features such as 3D, 4DX, or RPX. But I feel like for 9.95$/month it is still a steal. There
are no limitations besides that. You can go Sunday-Saturday anytime you want! There are NO
Blackout Dates, you can see the movie the day it comes out.
If you are someone who finds yourself at the movies at least once a month this will be of value
to you. The pass is only valid for one person only. Therefore, if you want to take a friend to the
movies with you-you would be saving money on your ticket.
When I go to the movies I’d normally try to refrain from buying extra stuff because I spent a lot
on the ticket already. But, with MoviePass, I don’t feel as bad buying them because I know I’ve
got my monies worth.
Are you still reading this?! Go and get your MoviePass now!
Below is a video highlighting pros and cons of MoviePass if you would like a further understanding of the MoviePass program
