Books To Films ~ Scripts & ScreenWriting

Books to Film is a very real dream of many authors.  Finding those who know the industry, following them and learning from them, adopting them as mentors, is the first step to bringing your dream to reality.  For me, this reality also consists of purchasing the software the big name scriptwriters and filmmakers use and teaching myself to bring my novels to scripts.  Multi-generational films/movies and their scripts can be found, and when you do find them, watch and read them through, because those are the keys to discovering why they have been popular and have become classics and successful for generations.  Many of these links below will either offer insight to the industry, further details, or allow the free download of the scripts and films – you should never have to pay for them if they are in the Public Domain, yet many websites charge varying prices.

Saving Private Ryan by Jacqueline Kehl

Saving Private RyanSaving Private Ryan by Jacqueline Kehl
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Touching, emotional, and dedicated to home, country, family, and peace – war is inevitable – things must get worse before things can get better. For one family the loss is far too great a burden. They must find the young soldier in the heart of battle, and send him home – three of his brothers have fallen, and his parents need him home. Tom Hanks best film, his heart was visible upon his sleeve as he portrayed the seriousness of the matter – amen. May God keep His soldiers forever in peace.

5 STARS from Madlyn Doey on Cocooning The Butterfly

“Drama, mystery, feuds, sorrow, joy, unconditional love, unconscionable hate and abuse, and healing the heart and soul.  Laila Doncaster, you rock; a stellar author.  Kept me enthralled the whole darn book!  Hurry up and get book 2 done so I can continue with the story.  I could not put it down!.”  Review by Madlyn Doey ~ British Columbia, Canada

Searching for the Gate by Richard K Doey

Searching for the GateSearching for the Gate by Richard K Doey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A must for anyone who appreciates musical words. This book of poetry … every poem is a song of the spirit and soul. Canadian born and raised, Richard Doey is a genius when it comes to writing poetry about love, in all of its forms. His work is dark, deep, metaphorical, beautiful and utterly breathtaking. This simple book of poetry contains no image visuals, bringing the reader deep into the text, forcing the imagination to work the words into visions so profound, you’ll be left with a feeling of awe. He writes of love, honesty, honorability, emotional pain and heartache, gifts and abundance regarding life and love. For the free and insightful deep thinkers, this book will bring you into your own heart and soul, until you see yourself for who you really are.

The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think every word in the English language (and many others) have been used to describe this story. Words like fascinating, thrilling, brilliant, time-honored, smashing, genius and they are all true in their description. If by chance you have yet to visit the theaters, live theatrical plays and/or the big screen theater, do the story the justice it so deserves and read the book prior to any visual outside the mind’s eye and imagination. The culture, the time of the era, the costumes, the words to every song have deep meaning and you will not want to miss a moment of this classic.
