Screenplay adaptations

Adapting novels into screenplays is a fine art. Sometimes the metamorphosis from one form into another can require the invention of new through-lines, characters and events that are more cinematic. Sometimes screenplay adaptations can be 'easier' because the source material is more cinematic. Some novels lack a cinematic story line that can be grafted into the screenplay structure easily, however; so in adapting these, a screenwriter must be innovative and subtle.


I love doing screen adaptations. It's a screenwriting discipline that requires a completely dedicated and distinct skill set. I am also a playwright. I can therefore adapt stage plays to the screen. get in touch to find out more about my book to screen adaptation, and stage to screen (or visa versa) services.
