In love with John August

I’m in love with John August. Screenwriter of Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryCharlie’s Angels and The Nines, he has a blog where he talks about writing to aspiring and professional writers. It’s brilliant. He is unbelievably generous. He also has a few short video “tutorials” and shows how, for instance, to re-write an action scene. Those are snapshots where you follow the process by watching it take place on his computer screen. Awesome. I’m utterly in love with him (with all due respect: he’s married and has a daughter – well, I can say that, by extension, I’m in love with his husband and daughter too).

Estou apaixonada pelo John August.  O roteirista de Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryCharlie’s Angels e The Nines, mantem um blog para roteiristas – iniciantes ou nao – onde ele fala sobre escrever roteiros. Eh sensacional. Eh de uma generosidade inacreditavel. Alem das dicas, ele faz alguns pequenos “tutoriais” em video e mostra como, por exemplo, re-escrever uma cena de acao.  Sao videos rapidos, onde voce acompanha o processo vendo a tela do computador dele. Um barato. Estou apaixonada, perdidamente apaixonada (com todo o respeito: ele eh casado e tem uma filha – bom, posso dizer que, por extensao, to apaixonada pelo marido e pela filha dele tambem).
