Script Frenzy - Adaptations Writing an adaptation? Whether it's from an existing novel, your own novel, or whatever, here you'll find other adaptationists adapting adaptable stuff! es Adaptation from a myth <p>So everyone knows it, mythology is in. It's 'cool'. Percy Jack and the Olympians. 300. The Immortals. Clash of the Titans. Wrath of the Titans. I Remember the Titans. (&lt;- joking) Disney's Hercules. 'Swords and sandals.' Mighty gods and battle cries along with hidden meanings. </p> <p>What's not to like about it all?</p> <p>So who else is adapting a myth to a script? Heck, maybe even a real Greco-Roman war story (300, anyone?). Adding in a ferocious monster like the chimera, or the Minotaur?</p> <p><a href="">leer más</a></p> Adaptations Sat, 21 Apr 2012 19:29:42 +0000 drenn 4172248 at How to be inspired and allusioned, but not to adapt. <p>I am not sure if this is on the right forum but anyway here it goes. I am doing a action-fantasy manga inspired by Alice through the Looking Glass. Now, I know this is a highly adapted series but I need some advice on how to take insipration and not just adapt the book. To add to the confusion, I do not want the story to only referance the book, but to have some parallels. Sorry this is confusing but I would really appreciate some help.</p> Adaptations Sun, 08 Apr 2012 22:50:37 +0000 The Grand Neko 4171388 at Slow Start <p>I'm adapting, "Emma," by Jane Austen for the stage. I'm off to a slow start due to a bad cold.</p> <p>Usually when I do an adaptation I don't refer to the book ever. For some reason, I'm finding myself wanting to reference the dialogue. I've been fighting the urge, but am considering giving in for the first few scenes in order to capture the rhythm of Austen's characters.</p> <p>This is the first time I've been an adaptation not set in this century.</p> <p>Anyone else adapting Jane Austen?</p> <p>Cyn</p> Adaptations Tue, 03 Apr 2012 17:16:17 +0000 cynfranks 4170400 at This is going to be an ENORMOUS script!! <p>Am adapating my 283 page story for SF this year, with the thought I could condense quite a bit in the early parts and expand on scenes desperately needing a bit of attention in the later parts. </p> <p>Only... here I am with a whopping 33 pages of script and only on p34 of the novel!!! Argh! At this rate my script will rival War &amp; Peace (book AND movie!).</p> <p>I've tried to condense scenes, but esp in the early sections everything seems so essential to plot and character establishment. Plus it's writing like a dream.. the dialogue just slips into place with hardly a complaint.</p> <p><a href="">leer más</a></p> Adaptations Tue, 03 Apr 2012 09:55:17 +0000 JehniT 4170308 at Adapting Book Series to TV Series <p>I am a four-time NaNo-er and a one-time Screnzier. Last year I partnered for an original graphic novel (not my wisest descision), but this year I'm doing a book series adaptation to a TV series. Any suggestions? It's a youth novel and would be a youth series..kind of like Redwall, if anyone's ever seen that.</p> Adaptations Mon, 02 Apr 2012 01:27:44 +0000 Nenya_s Wings 4169593 at Adapting a series of songs~ <p>Okay, if any of you are fans of Vocaloid, you're probably familiar with the songs Daughter of Evil and Servant of Evil. Well, it seems like this is pretty much common knowledge now, but you may not know that it's a part of a larger series of songs called the Evillous Chronicals. The songs go in this order:</p> <p>Moonlit Bear<br /> Abandoned on a Moonlit Night<br /> Recollective Orgel<br /> Chrono Story<br /> The Madness of Duke Venomania<br /> Flower Plateau<br /> Conchita<br /> The Tailor on Enbizaka<br /> TwiRight Prank<br /> Daughter of Evil<br /> Servant of Evil<br /> Daughter of White<br /> Wooden Girl<br /> Message of Regret</p> <p><a href="">leer más</a></p> Adaptations Sat, 31 Mar 2012 02:32:32 +0000 xAbbiChanx 4168245 at Anyone else writing a parody/spoof? <p>I'm writing a parody of Lord of the Rings (The entire trilogy) and just wondered if anyone else had undertaken a similar task!</p> Adaptations Fri, 30 Mar 2012 15:44:54 +0000 mrbowlerhat 4168081 at Adapting a Really Long Book? <p>I'm already writing a musical, but I'm thinking about either doubling up or at least preparing a little for next year to do an adaption of Susan Kay's Phantom, which I think would be a phenomonal movie/stage play.<br /> However, Phantom happens to be well over 400 pages, and there's a lot of really important information that's hard to cut out, as well as a lot of really brilliant moments. Anyone else having the same problem?</p> Adaptations Wed, 28 Mar 2012 01:08:02 +0000 purplerevolution 4167512 at Adapting from Koji Suzuki <p>I hadn't realized how little the movie The Ring was like the book. Too bad since it's a terrific book. Encouraged by my son, I'm writing a script for the book The Ring and I'm changing very little. Most of the names are Americanized and the locale is in the states but the rest should change little. Not sure what will come of the sfript but I'll be having fun writing it.</p> Adaptations Tue, 27 Mar 2012 08:27:10 +0000 Gostiee 4167367 at Adapting Video Games? <p>Anyone else out there jumping on this bandwagon that often fails in Hollywood? I'm helping a friend do this, it's not my personal one, I do the planning stuff and he does most of the writing.</p> <p>But yeah, anyone? They usually suck but we're doing a TV adaptation of LA Noire, so we're hoping it'll be good because the game is so good!</p> Adaptations Tue, 27 Mar 2012 01:15:33 +0000 EmilyYettaDenny 4167316 at
