This is the first installment of my very not-finished Potter Project, where I go through each chapter of the first Harry Potter book and try to find a way to translate it into a decent screenplay scene. This article focuses on chapter one and starting the proposed film at a different point than with the Dursleys.
If we break this down, one third of this project is light academia — looking at a text and interpreting it — while another third is practical; practicing for the sake of practicing — taking that interpretation and making it a viable screenplay scene as a thought exercise.
The final third is that I’m a nerd with some free time.Betsy the Gremlin
