It's a special episode with screenwriter and director John August (writer of Go, Big Fish, Charlie's Angels, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, writer/director of The Nines), talking about the entertainment industry, independent films, web series business models, and how he approached writing for his web series pilot, The Remnants. Join John and NM regulars Zadi Diaz, Chris McCaleb, and Steve Woolf for a great discussion that runs a little over an hour.

We chat about John's incredible blog, how he got into filmmaking, working with Ze Frank as an actor, the initiatives that got started and fizzled during the writer's strike, and writing stories for a new medium and for new technologies.
