IFMTV-UT 1152 | 4 units | Instructor: Katherine Lindberg
This course is a vigorous workshop devoted to the craft of adaptation and the development of feature-length screenplays from works of fiction and non-fiction. We will examine issues of rights acquisitions. Classic and contemporary theories of adaptation will also be considered.
Please note: As the class will be conducted on NYU’s Shanghai Campus, Case Studies will draw heavily from Chinese Adaptations, however, the lessons learned and skills acquired will be global and universal in nature, benefitting all writers engaging in the process of adaptation. For their own adapted work, students may source material from any region and are encouraged to think broadly about what material is suitable for adaptation.
