Alles rund um filmische Adaptionen

Adaption – Analysen ¬†¬†Wir lektorieren deutsch-, englisch- und franz√∂sischsprachige Romane, Expos√©s oder Romanadpationen und pr√ľfen ihren dramaturgischen Gehalt und Verfilmbarkeit. Dar√ľber hinaus erarbeiten wir konkrete Verbesserungsvorschl√§ge, liefern professionelle Adaptionshinweise und¬† bestimmen das Marktpotenzial.

Adaption – Expos√©s ¬†¬†Wir erstellen aussagekr√§ftige Projektpr√§sentationen in deutscher, englischer und franz√∂sischer Sprache f√ľr Entscheidungstr√§ger bei Sendern, Verleihern und F√∂rderern.

Adaption – Consulting¬†Wir¬†analysieren wir Drehbuchstoffe, beraten Produzenten und Autoren mit dramaturgischem Know-how. Bei der Entwicklung von Drehb√ľchern f√∂rdern wir deren Potenzial unter Zuhilfenahme kreativer Arbeitstechniken (Clustering,¬† Stellen von Konflikten, Colored Graph, Hinzuziehen von Filmbeispielen und anderer Visualisiertechniken).
