A Requirement I Started to Love

July 17, 2020

McKinney, Liv (Duke '20, Biology Major)

Film Adaptations; Novels; Short Stories;

To get an ALP (Arts, Literature, & Philosophy) credit I took an English class about books and short stories that were turned into movies. What I thought would be a fun, lighthearted class, led to an immense appreciation of the details that authors and directors choose to include in their work (while being fun of course). Anything I watch now causes me to think about the choices behind every aspect of production and allows me to explore a creative side that I never thought I would be interested in.

The works we read and watched all caused me to consider the different perspectives of the characters but also of the authors and directors that have to portray their message through techniques.
