503Studio Masterclass: Adaptation

Adaptation: Where do you fit in?

How do you find your way through adapting something you adore and admire (or possibly even hate) whilst maintaining your own unique voice? Joel Horwood will take you through a series of exercises to help you define your guiding principles and make a start on adapting that great thing that you’ve always wanted to work on.
