in my pathway i will be looking at the intertexuality between Virginia Woolf's 1928 novel and Sally Potter's 1992 flm Adaptation.
My pathway contains assets that explore the point of view of the camera and the placement of the camera as a voyeur. It evolved from a note that Sally Potter wrote on her shooting script: "The camera as a voyeur--behind something." From this note, I decided to find other assets that highlight a voyeuristic placement of the camera and thus the audience. My assets range from the camera positioning in intimate scene to Potter describing her use of character address in her director's commentary.
In a novel-to-film adaptation, one of the most interesting things to do is look at the source novel and see how it differs from the screenplay. Film is a visual medium, making it very different from the literary medium of the novel, but the adapted screenplay is like the bridge between the two, and can show the most striking resemblances and differences between the two versions of the story.
