Overview - About this Assignment
The process of writing a screenplay based on a novel/book is called "adaptation" - obviously, not everything from the book could make it onto the screen, or we'd be sitting there for days. It's time to take a hard look at these kinds of choices - you'll be creating an argumentative analysis project regarding the effectiveness of these choices. We call this assignment an adaptation analysis.
Your project will analyze the overall success of the film adaptation. You may choose to compare the stories (which are often drastically edited in the films), the imagery of the author’s words with the cinematography of the film, the sensory details of the book with the sound design of the film, and your personal reaction to the tone/mood of each, as well.
