2 Activate Your Thoughts!
Literary Adaptation is the act of adapting a literary work (novel, story, play, etc.) to another genre/medium (video game, film, play, etc.). Think of a book you’ve read that has been adapted into a film. Would you say the film was an effective/ successful adaptation of that book? Why or why not? Give specific details. Definition:

5 Your Opinion If you could write three rules for the adaptation of a literary source to film, what would they be? Be prepared to explain your reasoning. Follow-up Question: What qualities “should” a literary film adaptation have?

6 Literary Adaptation Types
Literal: A film adaptation in which the dialogue and the actions are preserved more or less intact. Faithful: A film adaptation based on a literary or other original source which captures the essence of the original, often by using cinematic equivalents for specific literary techniques. Loose: A film adaptation in which only a superficial resemblance exists to the original source. Source:

7 Effective Adaptations:
Respect for source Know what to bring to film Consider pacing—how long to spend on which scenes Strong actors/ characterization Flair—camera angles, cinematic effects, etc. Consider: Films are their own works of art as both adaptation AND creation.

13 Film Adaptation Analysis & Evaluation
How are the characters costumed and made-up? What does their clothing or makeup reveal about their social standing, ethnicity, nationality, gender, or age? How do costume and makeup convey character? What is illuminated, what is in the shadow? How does the lighting scheme shape our perception of character, space, or mood? How is dialogue and silence used in the film? What did the film emphasize from the text? Does the adaptation capture the novel’s formal elements: the theme, characterization, style, tone, and plot of the novel? Is the adaptation literal, faithful, or loose? Is this film version effective? Why or why not?
