Adapting Stories for the Screen

Am still computerless, and will be forced to rely on borrowing A's laptop and being sneaky at work until I earn enough to get a new laptop for myself. To that end, I'm running a workshop next Tuesday at Yorkshire Art Circus on "Adapting Stories for the Screen" and if you'd like to come, please email, or ring Angela or Lesley on 01977 550401. We'll be looking at some films that have been adapted from short stories and novels, and thinking about the differences between prose and script, and how to turn one into the other. Am I qualified to talk about this? Well, I wrote a short story, turned it into a script that didn't do too badly in an international competition, then produced a short film from that script. And I've written some other stuff as well. So, come along, find out where I think I went right and what I did wrong - then go off and make a film of your own.

Sorry but can't be there, thanks to another commitment. Hope it goes well and that there are repeats.

Sal, hope the workshop went really well.

I'm afraid you've been tagged, honey. It's all Brian Sibley's fault. Honest.

How did it go Sal? Can we have an update? Things are a bit too quiet round here!
