I am thrilled to work for From Book To Movie.
From Book To Movie started with a dream. The dream of a man in India. His name is Yogesh Bhatt.
A poet and a motivator with a background in cricket, coaching the young, inspiring sportspeople of his country with a recently completed and soon to be used sports manual. This manual will also be implemented by governmental sports organizations in India and on a global scale. Recently, Yogesh Bhatt was appointed by the International Human Rights Council in India, as Director to provide basic direction and facilities to all selected football players and coaches inside India and outside India.
In 2015, Yogesh contacted me, Patricia Shannon, a published author in New Zealand.
Together we shared a passion for writing and we soon embarked on writing a novel together.
The novel “Faithless Romance” is now available on Amazon, and Pothi.com in India, and being translated in Hindi, with the real possibility of being adapted to a movie. Negotiations are currently underway.
Yogesh Bhatt had a dream to one day make his mark in the Bollywood film industry and he asked me to work together on starting Rapid India LCC Services (Literary and Cinema Consultancy).
And thus it happened that I became involved in setting up the website and services to help aspiring, budding writers and established authors with advice, editing, and novel to screenplay adaptations.
Within a few months, we signed agreements with Julie Paupe, a producer in the UK and Barry Freeman, a movie ratings consultant in the USA, to collaborate with us to provide professional services to those who wish to make a career from writing, have their work adapted to a screenplay, require a USA movie rating, or to those who simply enjoy writing but would love to get some advice anyway. The local team in India also expanded.
After a while, people from all over the world contacted us and at the end of 2016, we felt it be the right time to make a change. It was then that From Book To Movie became the main company offering worldwide services, with Rapid India LCC Services as a coordinating company in India.
From Book To Movie now also is a literary agency and we’ve signed up authors from the UK as well as the USA and India. We have screenplays on offer and we are working hard to get support and funding for those screenplays to turn them into a movie. Not an easy task, but we are determined and committed to achieving our goal.
Yogesh Bhatt now lives his dream and I am honored to be able to share this dream with him, having the support of our collaborators and his local team with Dr. Anita Sharma as new CEO of Rapid India LCC. And assistance from Habiba Sayyed (film editor), Shaizadi Sayyed, Pragati Kavilkar and Ravindra Mehraniya.
Together we like to help people with their writing, screenplays, filmmaking, and publishing.
With the hands-on experience of our associates, Julie Paupe, a screenwriter, screenplay consultant and producer in the UK, and Barry Freeman, an experienced movie ratings consultant in the USA, combined with our own background and skills, we provide book to movie adaptations, but we also offer writing help, script writing help and more.
And, as experienced business owners, we know the importance of marketing and promotion.
Patricia has a strong public relations and marketing background, having worked for Entertainment Agencies, and companies such as Philips, Campina, and the ANZ Bank. Organizing large events being part of her function. As well as image building.
