Event Description

Hate it when your favourite story is made into a mediocre film or TV show? Think you can do better? You can.

As of this year at least 55% of TV shows and films are adaptations. And at least two thirds of Oscar winning films are adaptations.

This two-part workshop will occur over two Saturdays. In the first session we will look at the techniques and challenges of adaptation, how to format and structure your film, how to find source material, and how to get legal rights, amongst other topics. Participants will then be challenged to write a short film adaptation of a scene which will be workshopped and discussed in the second session the following week.

Saturday January 25 + Saturday February 1, 2020
2:00pm - 5:00pm
CineVic (#102 - 764 Yates Street)
