37. Adapting Your Novel for Screen

37. Adapting Your Novel (or Someone Else’s) for Screen
Writers Studio
Elan Mastai

Five of Elan Mastai’s screenplays have been made into films, most recently, “What If – a.k.a. The F Word”, which won the Canadian Academy Award and the Writers Guild of Canada Award for best screenplay. He’s also adapted his own first novel for screen. Elan gives you the nuts and bolts of compressing a novel into a different format and shorter length, and how to transition exposition into directions, how to cut supporting characters and subplots, finding the key dialogue that drives the storyline.
