Event W64

Kiri Bloom Walden

Adaptation from novel to screen

Venue: Scribblers Hut

This workshop will look at adaptation – how novels, plays and short stories become films. We’ll unpick the process of how this is done – from padding out some texts to cutting down others. How does film represent the ideas of the text without losing the style of the author? We’ll look in detail at examples including Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Jane Eyre, and Les Liaisons Dangereuses, before having a go ourselves at adapting a text from novel to screenplay.
