Adaptations have long been a mainstay of Hollywood and the television networks. Indeed, most Academy Award - and Emmy Award-winning films have been adaptations of novels, plays, and/or true life stories. Linda Seger, author of two acclaimed books on scriptwriting, now offers a comprehensive handbook for screenwriters, producers, and directors who want to successfully transform factual or fictional material into film. She tells how to analyze source material to understand why some of it resists adapting. She then gives practical methods for translating story, characters, themes, and style into film. A final section details essential information on how to option material and how to protect oneself legally.
