Adapting the Screenplay to either Novel or Graphic Novel?

I have two screenplays that I've finished, and I've read an article on "Scriptmags" about adapting your screenplay into an IP (Intellectual Property), in order to increase your chances for a sale. And I've read it somewhere in David Troitter's "Screenwriting Bible", about doing Transmedia and adapti...

Personally, when I was in the market for a script, I found the best screenwriters focused on screenwriting. Those who also wrote books of the same story were generally unreadable.

A screenplay is Inte...

Jeff Gomez explains: “The first step is to break a story into its parts. This process involves determining themes (the core messages), archetypes (th...

Story is key, yes. On whatever platform, the audience needs to be engaged in the characters. I studied this topic this year at London Film School mainly because I’ve never been into social media. (A b...

The video is available on the site long after the streaming has ended, and the MP4 can be downloaded and then uploaded to YouTube, where you can make it more public and opt...

Joseph L. Stewart

Yes. I would think so. It seems to be transferrable across the board, and it transcends all genres. Excellent choice of your work to represent this question, btw. :)

A great example of Transmedia Cross Platform story telling was Dark Knight 2008. (Before the film even came out). Not only comics, internet and gaming outlets ....but massive public interactive live p...

How to Pitch a MOW

Hi, all. I pitched a series that does not look like it's going to get picked-up the way I had envisioned it. Instead, I reworked what I had into a screenplay but, since it is based on a TV series, I want to be able to stress that in a pitch session. This is not a pilot (although it could be reworked...

Case Study: The Guild.

Why was this series successful and others have fallen flat? I put the credit squarely on the writing and character development. What are your thoughts? Also, the "confessional," cuts allows the story to read both as individual episodes or each season as a movie. Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog shared this motif to great effect.
