Scriptnotes Podcast

John August and Craig Mazin

Screenwriters John August and Craig Mazin discuss screenwriting and related topics in the film and television industry, everything from getting stuff written to the vagaries of copyright and work-for-hire law.


Craig and John investigate the future of the 007 franchise, script-reading robots, and the realities of overhauling a movie in the editing room. We also look at another How Would This Be a Movie idea turning into reality. The live show at ArcLight is a week away and tickets are almost sold out. Get yours now!
