Adaptation of Story Cover




Workshop Fee


Adaptation to screen is adapting of a literary source like a novel, short story, a stage play or even a poem to a film. Though the source material may be rich in content in terms of plot, characters and scope for interpretation, it is an art to convert the existing written material into a cinematic form. It is also considered to be a low risk proposition from an investor point of view as it may have a pre-existing fan following and therefore greater audience appeal as a film.

The workshop is conducted over 2 Sundays comprising of 2 sessions each. The participants will learn to identify the core emotion of a written work as well as a film. They will be exposed to the basics of cinematic writing and through exercises be able to gain insights into the world of adaptation.


  • Personal attention by faculty
  • Live online lectures
  • Interactive discussion

At the end of the workshop the participants will have created a ground or foundation for something they might want to adapt into a film.
