Ep 255: “Adaptation”

November 15, 2023

We grow into Charlie Kaufman’s “Adaptation” and discuss:

  • Wes discusses losing his grandmother (00:00-13:38);
  • Cinematography;
  • Story & Writing, subplots vs settings, Charlie’s twin;
  • New Mad Valley track “Come Back Down”;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

There’s this inherent screenplay structure that everyone seems to be stuck on, this three-act thing. It doesn’t really interest me. To me, it’s kind of like saying, ‘Well, when you do a painting, you always need to have sky here, the person here and the ground here.’ Well, you don’t. – Charlie Kaufman
