Stephen Cleary’s world renowned ADAPTATION workshop returns to Ireland. This two day workshop is aimed at filmmakers, producers and writers who are planning to adapt work for the screen.
Stephen Cleary’s adaptation workshop came along at the perfect moment. We had just optioned a book and the process of deciding which elements of the novel we wanted to adapt and how we would set about doing it became so much clearer. I can’t recommend it enough!”
Natasha Marsh, Producer, Academy Award Winner, WASP
