INT. BLOGISPHERE - DAY

John August is unique among screenwriters, not only for his body of work, but for his commitment to guide other screenwriters along the erratic pathway to success through his blog, JohnAugust.com.
Recently, John generously participated in an interview for the documentary and covered a number of want-to-know topics of value equally to emerging scripters as well as accomplished and veteran writers.
John describes his blog as "a ton of useful information about screenwriting" but I think he greatly underestimates the mass of value in his postings.
John August Filmography: The Nines (& directed), Corpse Bride, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Big fish, Charlie's Angels (I&II), Go.
