Our good friends over at DV Guru have thrown up a real groovy two-part interview with screenwriter John August that you simply must read right now. August made his mark in Hollywood with his script Go back in 1999, a fun film that tells the story of a drug deal gone bad from three different points of view. From there, August dipped into blockbuster territory, writing for both Charlie's Angels and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. Lately, he's found himself wrapped up in the bizarre world of Tim Burton, penning the scripts for Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Corpse Bride.

Not only is he one of today's most successful screenwriters, but he also offers a tremendous amount of advice for young writers looking to break in. Through his blog and various speaking engagements, August is a man who clearly lives for the craft. In Ajit Anthony's very informative interview, August covers everything from writing and directing to what it's like working so closely with Tim Burton. Oh, and what would a John August interview be without a ton more advice on breaking down doors in Hollywood? Go check out part one and part two now.
