Young Storyhouse curated event.

Does great literature always make a great movie? How do you decide what to cut from books when making them into a film?

Join producer Diana Napper and find out the journey involved in projecting pages onto the silver screen. An informal and interactive Q&A where you’ll finally be able to get the answers to those burning questions you’ve always had for your favourite film adaptations.

This casual meeting is open to under 26s and recommended for anyone interested in the process of turning written works into film.

Diana Napper worked for 15 years with John Calley (producer of The Da Vinci Code) and produced The Jane Austen Book Club. Most recently Diana has been involved as producer on Half Broken Things and The Poison Tree for television.
