The Art of Adaptation: From Page to Screen

Workshop Leader: Andy Mingo

WHEN: Starts July 11th :: 9 Wednesdays from 6:00 - 8:30pm

WHERE: The Corporeal Center, 510 SW 3rd Ave, Portland, OR 97204

COST: $350

Come learn the techniques needed to effectively adapt a story or novel into a screenplay ready for the screen. In this nine week workshop, we will view/read some examples of page to screen adaptations and make some useful comparisons, explore tools and techniques in transforming action, dialogue and exposition in prose into visual storytelling, and finish with adaptation workshops where we will read and give feedback to one another's film adaptation projects.  

No prior screenwriting experience is needed. If you are an adventurous writer interested in crossing mediums into the world of film, a hybrid artist, or are simply looking for ways to approach your creativity from another angle, this workshop is appropriate for you. 

Andy Mingo is a Portland-based writer/director/producer whose work has screened around the world and has gained recognition at national and international film festivals and screenings. In 2012 Andy was invited to the Paris-Sorbonne University where he lectured on the process of adapting Chuck Palahniuk’s fiction to the screen.
