Interplay


Halfway through my time as an undergraduate, my perception of critical analysis was changed thanks to a Film Studies module I took. From there, I went on to study Adaptations in my post-graduate years, tackling adaptations of popular books, comics, and videogames into other media (generally movies and television shows). Taking its name from my PhD thesis, Interplay articles are lengthy, essay-like pieces designed to discuss adaptations in their many forms and, as a result, only tend to be published two or three times a year.
