19 EpisodesProduced by Gabriel L. RodriguezWebsite

A podcast about one screenwriter's Three-Act Structure Called "Life."



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.

"Awakenings" (1990)

"Forrest Gump" and "Shawshank Redemption" (1994)

"Doubt" (2008)

"Frost/Nixon" (2008)

"Slumdog Millionaire" (2008)
