Ever wonder what the creative process looks like to create a movie based on a book?  

In this episode, I talk with Lane Shefter Bishop, a multi-award-winning producer and director. She’s produced feature films including The Duff and Assassination Games, TV series, and more. Many of her works in film were inspired by or based on books, giving her a unique perspective on how stories are told through both written text and film. 

Throughout our conversation, Lane shares the behind-the-scenes story of what inspired her book Sell Your Story in a Single Sentence: Advice From the Front Lines of Hollywood and why she feels it’s essential to sell your story in a single sentence. She also shares her perspective on how different directing is from producing, how to work with an author on a book-to-movie project, and what inspires her to keep driving forward.
