The first day introduces you to a new way of marrying the specific technical demands the original material makes of the writer with a fast and practical way of getting to the thematic centre of the adapted screenplay you want to write.
The second day shows how to use key screenwriting techniques to ensure your adaptation is truly cinematic as it moves away from the source material to achieve its own integrity. This is followed by a step-by-step guide through an adaptation screenwriting process.
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!”
