On this episode, I talk about how screenwriters adapt screenplays that are derived from other works such as novels, short stories, short films, news articles, and more. I talk about the decision-making process that goes into what to include, take out, and add when it comes to writing an adaptation. I also talk about two examples of feature films that were adapted very well from a novel and short film, respectively, along with two amazing novels whose adaptation were (in my opinion) a failure.
There are lots of great films that were adapted from other sources that I didn't get to mention in my episode, but please check them out.
"Forrest Gump" and "Shawshank Redemption" (1994)
"Slumdog Millionaire" (2008)
