There is almost no doubt in my mind that the vast majority of you will have seen a film recently that has been adapted from something else. Recently it is the novel more than anything else that has been the target of movie makers.
Let me break down the various forms of adaptation that can be discussed here. You can specify a film you would like to discuss or talk about how you feel about adaptation in general. Is there something you would like to see adapted? Why?
- Novels/Literature into film or television.
- Television into film.
- Film into television (avoid anime discussions)
- Music into a visual experience (Peter and the Wolf for example)
- Stage Shows into Film/TV and vice-versa
