Academy Originals’s Creative Spark series profiles screenwriter John August‘s creative process. August’s list of credits include Go, Charlie’s Angeles, Big Fish, Frankenweenie and many other films. He’s probably best known for his adaptations and his collaborations with director Tim Burton. We have often featured August on the site because we’re fans of his work (Go is in my top 10 of all time) and he puts himself out there to help aspiring screenwriters learn about the craft and how the business works — we sometimes point to the instructional content he produces. In this Creative Spark video, August gives us a rundown of how he comes up with ideas, how he crafts a scene, and how his screenplays are created. Watch the how to write movies video now embedded after the jump.
