Kate Sinclair - Book to Screen
How do great books make it onto the big screen? Meet the producer who knows the answer.
In this episode of Belle Books & Stories, producer Kate Sinclair, founder of Alchemy Entertainment, reveals insights into her work and passions. In her career Kate has discovered some very hot properties at an early stage - when they were simply in manuscript form - the books were to follow much later, sometimes years later.
Kate explains how she discovered 'Slumdog Millionaire' (8 Oscars including Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay), 'Salmon Fishing in the Yemen' which went on to be a huge box office hit starring Ewan McGregor and Jessie Burton's wonderful debut novel set in 17th Century Amsterdam 'The Miniaturist'. It won many awards. Find out about Kate's work, her inspiration and how she helps transform the narrative on the page into an experience for the screen.
