Hi, would like to hear your opinions, tips, advice, tricks and everything about adapting a novel of 600-700 pages to a screenplay of 90-120 pages. Where and how do you begin? I already did it and developed some tricks for myself, but would love to discuss and learn. Where should the novel be tightened, what to leave out, how to shorten it? Should the screenwriter reduce it to the minimum by focussing on dialogues and leave the rest to the director? What are your ideas, experiences and tricks? Thank you all in advance!
