Reading On Vocation with Ramona Koval: Filmmakers
Writing a screenplay or adapting a novel into a movie brings words to life, so Ramona Koval asks our filmmakers how they create and are inspired by books.
Camille Chen talks about the usefulness of Robert McKee’s book Story and how she read poetry, while Sue Maslin discusses adapting The Dressmaker by Rosalie Ham and how screenwriters “turn a story into a wonderful cinema experience”. And Adam Elliott talks about his love of Leunig and Barry Humphries, and how he wants to make a claymation out of The Grapes of Wrath.
