Ink to Film is a show for readers and film aficionados alike. We read and discuss a novel in a granular way, then move to the film adaptation and talk about all the ways it relates to the book, and how it stands on its own. Hosts Luke and James have studied writing and film respectively, and bring an insider's insight into the show. Whether merely curious about the source material or an avid fan, Ink to Film should appeal to you!

Did you know that “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb” was based on a novel by a former member of the British Royal Air Force? Before Stanley Kubrick’s classic film, Peter George (a. k. a. Peter Bryant) wrote a deadly serious thriller about escalating tensions brought to a boil when one man goes rogue in an attempt to start World War III. Originally published as Two Hours to Doom, the story of this novel and its relationship to Dr. Strangelove is worth a listen.

Alfonso Cuarón’s apocalyptic masterpiece CHILDREN OF MEN is a modern classic starring Julianne Moore, Clive Owen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Charlie Hunnam, and Michael Caine. His adaptation of P. D. James’ novel of the same name differs significantly but stands on its own as breathtaking art and perhaps even rises above.  Topics: The horrors of U.S. detention centers, the effect of the long take “oners”, the special rig necessary to get an iconic scene, the use of classic works of art hidden in the film, a story of a mishap that is the stuff of filmmaking legend, how Harry Potter paved the way for this movie to be made, and the completion of Theo Faron’s character arc.
