Ever watch an adapted movie and wonder, "Why did they change or delete that scene/character/sequence?" Facilitated by Monte Merrick, a UCLA Extension screenwriting instructor, this workshop explores the process of adapting books for the screen. By examining well-known film adaptations, we discuss how filmmakers retain the essence of the original work while creating their own unique vision, as well as how lengthy narrative passages are turned into visually stimulating scenes for the big screen. This is a great workshop for anyone looking to adapt material!
The format is simple: read the book, see the movie, and come to the workshop prepared to discuss
how the adaptation process worked or didn't work.
A light dinner and drinks will be served.
