VIDEO: Creative Spark: Screenwriter, John August

Today’s video, courtesy of Academy Originals, features Screenwriter John August, known for films such as Frankenweenie, Dark Shadows, Corpse Bride, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Big Fish, Charlie’s Angels & Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle and Titan A.E.

In this interview, John shares his fascinating process, how he writes (both from a mental/imagination process as well as the practical application of that process), where he draws inspiration, how he gives himself the best environment to be creative and how he problem solves.

Two words that stood out to us “standing desk”.  What a concept.

Enjoy.
