Hello and thanks for visiting The Film Version from Instagram!

I’m a freelance writer investigating the many ways film interacts with the novel. Here at The Film Version I explore adaptation and cinematic storytelling in a collection of long reads – everything from the themes connecting The Sisters Brothers and The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, to franchise storytelling.

If you’re looking for some of the recent links I shared on Instagram, you can find them below. Please get in touch using this form and sign up to my email newsletter for regular updates and my latest posts. I hope you enjoy reading my work and I look forward to meeting you in the comments!
