Chautauqua Author Talk: Turning Books into Movies

  • Chautauqua Community House 900 Baseline Road Boulder, CO 80302 (map)

As a screenwriter and former Director of Development at Blue Tulip Productions at 20th Century Fox, I'm always asking myself the question: “Would this novel or short story make a good film?” Drawing examples from major studio movies I helped develop, I will discuss what makes a piece of literature cinematic, why some adaptations work and others don’t, and how the process is currently unfolding for Contrition.
