Work of art arouses responses and reactions in us. More often than not we want to tell the story again but with our own take on it. We want to redo a poem or a painting to give a new perspective to a well accepted original version. At other times we ask the what if question to the source material. What emerges from these responses is an adaptation of the original material. 
This session discusses adaptation in the context of Films. What is adaptation? What makes it work? Why do we keep hearing of failed adaptation? Well then what  satisfies both the reader and the audience? How does one go about it?
We discuss all of this in four hours along with different examples and a detailed one. We also try to arrive at a methodology to approach adaptation.

    The webinar was an eye-opener for me, absolutely raw participant! I read “It Had to be Murder” after I watched the Film “Rear Window”! Then I realised, how much hard work goes into writing of a screenplay, “Adapting” a story for the screen can be different from the actual story! Ma’am’s narration has helped prepare me for experimentation with some deviation in writing for the screen. I look forward to the exhaustive screenwriting course in November, 2020 provided a seat is available and other festival/schedules don’t clash. Thank you so much!
