The Craft: Reverse Engineer - Script To Book Adaptation

Hi everyone, and welcome back to another episode of The Craft. It's an interesting episode since I'm technically going beyond my initial plan for this podcast. When I first launched this thing, I had the idea to talk about the 12 sequences in a screenplay, but it's kind of grown into something a little bigger...so now I have the fun yet unenviable task of coming up with brand new material every week that isn't directly related to sequence writing. The last 14 episodes have been a lot of fun to record and post, and now we're treading through some foreign waters in a way. It should be interesting, and I'm just as curious as you are as to what the hell I'm going to talk about. I have, though, come up with something - a topic that I've noticed many of our ISA members have found curious and intriguing in its own right; adapting a screenplay into a book.

Hi Max,
your talk about turning a screenplay into a novel resonate with me . I explain why: I wrote a LONG screenplay about inspired by the real life ( as much real as I could find ''suport material'' :D joking... documents about him) but of course also romanced and transformed trghough my own eyes.
So the story being long I made a three parts script; each one has around 220 pages. SO, YES the novel is almost done. My screenwriting teacher James Bonnet tells me to also write a novel out of it. as it's almost written. And yes this is what I wanted to mention. It gives me a hint of why not doing it? Thanks for the useful and well done post!!
Best
