    Thought others here might be interested in this. It looks like it's going to be a series. Reprinted from AFI Announcement: Tune in to Turner Classic Movies this Tuesday, November 15, at 5:00 p.m. PT/8:00 p.m. ET to watch the world premiere of TCM presents AFI's Master Class: The Art of Collaboration. The program will repeat that evening at 9:00 p.m. PT/12:00 midnight ET. This new series of extraordinary one-hour specials — a collaboration between Turner Classic Movies and the American Film Institute, filmed at the world renowned AFI Conservatory in Hollywood — debuts with a focus on the 40-year creative partnership and friendship between master filmmaker Steven Spielberg and composer John Williams, one of the most prolific and influential artistic collaborations in film history. Master classes are a core part of the curriculum at the AFI Conservatory, which offers a Master of Fine Arts degree in six filmmaking disciplines and was recently named the #1 film school in the world by The Hollywood Reporter. With an audience comprised solely of AFI Fellows, the two artists discuss films that inspired them and present clips from these classic films. They also present and discuss their own collaborative work to illustrate different aspects of filmmaking. Each program concludes with a Q&A session with AFI Fellows. The Spielberg-Williams collaboration began in 1974, when Spielberg asked the composer to score THE SUGARLAND EXPRESS (1974), the director’s first theatrical film. The pair has since collaborated on such popular hits as JAWS (1975), CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND (1977), RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK (1981), E.T.: THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL (1982) and JURASSIC PARK (1993), as well as such dramas as SCHINDLER’S LIST (1993) and SAVING PRIVATE RYAN (1998). Today, the Spielberg-Williams collaboration continues full force, with THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN and their 25th feature film collaboration, WAR HORSE, both set for release this Christmas. Spielberg’s LINCOLN, which will mark their 26th feature film together, is slated for release in 2012. Click Here to watch preview.

    I found this fairly interesting, but I would have liked having a knowledgeable moderator ask the questions of the two instead of having Spielberg sort of take the lead. I thought he felt a little uncomfortable in the role, like he felt compelled to fill air time.
