Hi, I never wrote a script before, but I want to take my chance and try it. I was thinking about writing an adaptation of a series from another country. What do you think :)?

Adaptation has a lot of complications, including (but not limited to) copyright and what you "should" leave out in terms of the story and characters, so if you've never written a screenplay before I don't recommend you START with an adaptation to be honest with you. I would recommend starting with your own idea as a short film (5 pages or less) and building up your knowledge and skills-base from there. If however your heart is set on adapting something first off, here's some more info: http://www.bang2write.com/2011/11/copyright-adaptation.html Good luck!
