Genre: TV & Film Info
What It's About: The feature and television industries (but mostly feature) from the point of view of the working screenwriter. In each edition, hosts John August and Craig Mazin address issues relevant to movie writers, from interacting with your collaborators to understanding residuals. Not a "how to write well" seminar, this podcast is centered on the day-to-day business issues commonly encountered by screenwriters.
Why You Should Care: Because the hosts have years of knowledge and experience to share. August and Mazin each have over a decade of professional work under their belts, as well as a variety of experience working with the union and other writers' organizations. Their collective knowledge is a fantastic resource for anyone interested in the business operations of professional screenwriting. Plus, they're interesting and amusing guys to listen to.
