Novels, short stories, comics, and non-fiction all present unique challenges to screenwriters seeking to adapt them into successful scripts for theatrical films and streaming series. Must the screenwriter be loyal to the novelist? How can a 19th-century work of literature be translated into a modern visual medium? Join screenwriter Randall Jahnson for a frank discussion about the adaptation process.

Randall Jahnson has been a professional screenwriter for 33 years. Among his credits are “Dudes,” “The Doors,” “The Mask of Zorro,” “Sunset Strip,” and episodes of “Tales from the Crypt.” He also wrote the award-winning epic Western video game, “Gun.” He teaches screenwriting at the Northwest Film Center.
