TED’s Screenplay Adaptation Consultation service provides a fast, low-cost mean for writers to get insightful answers and personalized insights about how books and other stories become movies, which stories are best suited for adaptation, and what’s involved in translating stories for the screen. It’s also suitable for novelists and writers of narrative nonfiction who want hands-on help in adapting, planning, writing, editing, or pitching a screenplay.
Consultation sessions are conducted by phone with Robert Blake Whitehill or TED’s Director of Development John Robert Marlow.
In addition to being an award-winning novelist, Academy-honored screenwriter, John’s latest book, Make Your Story a Movie: Adapting Your Book or Idea for Hollywood, includes interviews with some of the most successful novelists, screenwriters, directors, and producers working in Hollywood today, whose films have collectively made over $50 billion.
No charge for first 15 minutes. $75 per hour thereafter.
Typically less than 1 week.
