SSP042 Adapting a Story for Film and TV pt. 2

Released On: November 21, 2018

Several episodes ago, we talked about film and TV adaptation and how we're approaching the process as we work to move into new formats of storytelling. Today, we continue the conversation by looking at adaptations you may be familiar with and discussing how they differ from their source material.

We Talk About:

Stephen King's Adaptations.

Why the source material has to be re-imagined.

The Fat Vampire and Invasion series adaptation process.

Adaptation is a collaboration.

The Walking Dead’s adaptation.

The Haunting of Hill House’s adaptation.

How The Disaster Artist changed the story to make a better movie.

You're invited to join us at the final Smarter Artist Summit on February 18th and 19th in Austin, TX. Authors and publishing experts from around the world will join us to teach you strategies that will outlast the “what’s working yesterday” tactics everyone else is talking about. Attendance is limited, so reserve your spot at now.
