Jim Rash & Nat Faxon's Script Writing Masterclass

Their first screenplay together won them an Oscar ( The Descendants ), while their latest movie together The Way Way Back is winning plaudits and critical acclaim from all around.

So we sat down with the sickeningly multi-talented actor/writer/director duo Jim Rash and Nat Faxon to get some script writing tips - including advice they'd give their younger selves, how their acting experience informs their writing, and - most importantly - how they settle co-writing disagreements.

It involves slapping.

The Way Way Back is in UK cinemas from 28 August 2013.
