You’re waiting in the wings before walking on stage, but you’re worried about last looks for hair and make-up. You’re researching locations before submitting a budget, but you’re not sure if filming on location or in-studio is safer or worth it. You’re writing a particularly powerful scene, but you’re not sure if the joke lands to break the tension. Even in our virtual workplace, we still have the ability to gain perspective before making an important decision by posting in the Stage 32 Lounges!

Should you “check yourself before you wreck yourself”? Consider the alternative, and I must admit, I am an expert in that arena. Well known for having to learn the hard way, I often try something, fail, lament, and then try again. Eventually. Unfortunately, it is always at risk that you’ll stop trying when knocked down too many times, and the only way to be successful in this business is to keep going! When the stakes are high, why not reach out to other professionals to give yourself more options? You’ll still have to try it for yourself, of course, but there may be a wiser, more collaborative approach.

Asking about adapting your IP into another format is a fantastic way to engage with the Stage 32 Community! If you’re writing one script for multiple formats at the same time, definitely check in with the Transmedia Lounge as well!
It just so happens that another member has already benefited from this idea of adapting a screenplay into a novel. It’s worth it to search the lounges to see if your question is being addressed and answered elsewhere. You can search lounge topics here. The search bar is at the top right!
