Your book as a movie

Post  Maggie on Fri Mar 11, 2011 2:19 pm

A lot of times I think about my book as a movie. What I'd like it to be like, who I'd like to have write my soundtrack, etc. If you could have your book as a movie, what movie would you like it to be like? (Example: Alice in Wonderland, LOTR, Avatar, Pride & Prejudice, etc) Depending on what you write.

Also, if you've already thought about this a lot, are there any actors/actresses you'd like to play your characters? What about soundtrack? Have you even ever thought of all this before? Wink

For me I want it to be filmed well with good coloring, darker colors. I'd want mostly british acting, though I have no one in particular picked out. It would be the dream if I could watch auditions and assist in picking the roles, but writers never get to do these things. ^^ I'd like a good director who believes in keeping to the book as much as possible and who has captured my vision.

I'm thinking for soundtrack maybe Harry Gregson-Williams, James Horner, Hans Zimmer... maybe one of those. Smile

Same! I only have one actress in mind, and it's for a minor villain-type character--Jessy Schram would be perfect for Vivian. She'll probably be too old to play Vivian by the time, if ever, my book was made into a movie. But she's perfect, anyway. Smile

I'd never heard of her until now. Very Happy How old is Vivian supposed to be?

She's not actually given an age, but she's between 15 and 20ish, maybe as old as 23. Jessy Schram is a young-looking actress, but I don't think you could stretch her age that far, lol. She really stood out for her performance in The Mentalist, episode Ball of Fire. And she looks exactly as I imagine Vivian, except with loosely curled hair instead of straight. *sigh* 'Twould be pretty awesome.

Lol, every time I read that part, I picture her.

Most of my fantasizing about books turning into movies have been about Amanda's project. I don't know if I've dreamt up something epic enough for that yet. The one I'm working on now is basically just a romance-adventure, and I can't imagine any of my other ideas translating well to the movie format. For my Snow White, the MC is sleeping a lot, the sci-fi one isn't very good in the first place, and my historical super-powers idea…hmm. That one might work. Very Happy
