Extra Credit Adaptation Assignment
For extra credit you have the opportunity to write your own film adaptation from a story that we have covered in class. First choose any myth or legend (examples: Zeus and Io, The Iliad, The Death of Balder, etc.) Next, you must change the time period, setting, and at least one other MAJOR component of the story (similar to O'Brother Where Art Thou). Then you must adjust the basic story to fit the adaptations.
~ Character list with brief descriptions including adaptations
~ Full Plot Summary (1 page double spaced typed)
~ One full scene with dialogue (1 page double spaced typed)
Extra Credit points will be awarded according to the effort and creativity shown.
